Nearly 100 guests attended the launch party including Coffin Mew CEO Miles Brown and the new Brighton leadership team: Nick Leavey, chairman and partner – head of commercial property; Mark O’Halloran, partner - head of commercial services; and Mark James, partner – dispute resolution.
Senior partners, solicitors and staff from across Coffin Mew’s sector teams were also present, as well as many of its clients, key contacts and local business people.
Coffin Mew, which provides legal services to businesses and individuals in the region, treated guests to champagne and canapés as they enjoyed the evening, socialised and toured the firm’s new office. It spans four storeys and features a modern ‘hot desking’ system and collaborative work space.
A delighted Nick Leavey said: “Our Brighton launch party was a great success with dozens of people from Coffin Mew and other organisations turning out to help us celebrate the beginning of a new era for our firm in this vibrant, exciting and entrepreneurial city.
“We opened in Brighton three years ago but demand for our services has skyrocketed and our talented, hard-working team is now three times its original number. Our new premises can accommodate the breadth of Coffin Mew’s industry sectors from property and commercial to employment and family law, so this positions us perfectly for further growth in the last quarter of 2018 and beyond.”
Coffin Mew also has offices in London, Portsmouth, Southampton, Gosport, Newbury and Wantage. With a recently refreshed bold and innovative brand, it is aiming to become a £20 million law firm by 2020.
