New Manchester office as Riverview Law eyes major recruitment drive and awards additional training contracts

Following new contract wins and the expansion of work with existing customers, Riverview Law is relocating to larger premises in Manchester on 1 September to accommodate its growing team.

The move to Delta House in Wythenshawe comes 17 months after the business first opened in Manchester. This larger space, combined with the Wirral Service Delivery Centre, will enable Riverview to recruit up to 60 more team members, including solicitors, paralegals, client managers and data analysts, over the next year, and provide an option to take additional space in line with future business growth.

Previously, 20 staff worked from the Manchester office with each working between the city and the business’s headquarters in the Wirral.

The new state-of-the-art office provides Riverview Law with enhanced multi-site disaster recovery and IT resilience, meaning that it can provide client services in an ever more secure business environment.

Riverview Law has recently awarded two training contracts to existing members of the team to join its two-year solicitor training programme, which it first launched in September 2014. Susannah Brumby and Harriet Clayton will commence their training contracts this October. The first cohort of seven trainees finishes in September, with the second group of six trainees now almost a year into their training.

Riverview Law’s Operations Director, Katy Robson, says: “Our continued growth is due to increasing customer demand and Manchester provides an excellent talent pool to meet it. Increasingly, our corporate customers demand a higher standard of IT and data security and we must be able to meet and exceed this expectation to grow existing contracts and win new business. Our new office enables us to provide this important reassurance.

“We are also thrilled to have offered two more training contracts this year and to have our first trainee solicitors qualifying in September. Since we launched our trainee programme in 2014 we have awarded 15 trainee contracts and are committed to continuing the development and progression of all Riverview Law team members.”

Riverview Law has three UK locations – London, Manchester and Wirral – and two US locations – New Jersey and New York.
