Manchester law firm secures funding for growth

EOS Law, the boutique business law firm founded in 2010 by Simon Woolley, the former managing partner of DLA Piper’s Manchester office, has secured a six-figure funding package from NatWest Commercial Banking to support its growth strategy.

EOS Law recently moved into 3,000 sq ft of office space at 82 King Street, after appointing its first five partners in finance and restructuring, corporate, employment and real estate. The firm is now 18-strong and is due to announce a further round of partner and other appointments over the summer.

Simon Woolley, managing partner of EOS Law, said: "This financing package from NatWest highlights the strength of the EOS Law proposition and business model against what remains a challenging economic backdrop.

"Over the coming months, we will welcome our second wave of talented and experienced partners in the areas of corporate, IP and litigation. We move forward from a strong financial base and with a keen focus on delivering work of the highest quality to our growing entrepreneurial and blue chip client base."

Nick Leeland, relationship manager at NatWest Commercial Banking in Manchester, said: "EOS Law is an exciting and innovative new entrant into the North West’s and the wider legal sector, and we look forward to supporting Simon Woolley and his team as they continue to develop and grow the firm over the coming years."
