Keelys bolts on Burrells to London office

Keelys Solicitors has acquired insurance defendant specialist Burrells.

The Lichfield-headquartered firm said Burrells would be merged with Keelys London.

Burrells partners Derek Burrell and Eamonn Clifford will work directly with Keelys head of costs litigation Simon Murray.

Burrells specialises in complex and high-value claims and recoveries for insurers.

Keelys managing partner Daniel Keane said the acquisition would boost the firm’s national presence.
