INSOLVENCY specialists Leonard Curtis Business Solutions Group (LCBSG) has introduced a legal services division.

Leonard Curtis Legal, the new firm launched yesterday, provides legal services for accountant contacts and clients of Leonard Curtis Group’s 11 UK offices. LCBSG has become one of the first UK practices in the SME market to take advantage of the changing legal service regulation.

The last 2 years have shown a lot of accountancy firms also pushing into the legal services market, with the ICAEW being able to regulate it.

Leonard Curtis Legal is offered in addition to LCBSG’s recently launched free Lifecycle network for accountants, which provides members with legal advice

Daniel Booth, LCBSG director, said: “The wider group sees more and more situations that need a solution which crosses over professional disciplines and services in the SME space. Adding legal services was a natural next step for Leonard Curtis.”

Leonard Curtis Legal is based in Manchester and is headed by Andrew Gregory, a former DWF Manchester office managing partner and head of business restructuring. The new firm HQ, offers advice on start-ups, business finance, contract reviews, employment advice, cash management, debt recovery and dispute resolution. Services to individuals include advice for sole traders and partners, support for directors and shareholders in a wide range of situations including strategies for those seeking to exit a business.

Gregory said; “In these areas we plan to offer high quality national law firm expertise with, wherever possible, the provision of fixed fees.”

Associate Solicitor Jennifer Moore, formerly of Squire Patton Boggs, Manchester, has also joined the Leonard Curtis Legal team, alongside paralegal Jenny Fell.
