hlw Keeble Hawson becomes Keebles

Law firm hlw Keeble Hawson has changed its name to Keebles.

The rebrand is among a series of formative developments for the law firm, which is expanding its private client and commercial teams with 20 new appointments already in 2018.

This year has also seen the recently renamed Keebles, which has offices in Sheffield, Leeds and Doncaster, advise Nationwide Retail Systems and Delivered on Time on their sales to Civica UK and DHL, respectively.

Additional highlights for Keebles in 2018 include hosting a European conference on Brexit for fellow members of Consulegis, a high-profile international network of independent law firms and professional advisers.

Paul Trudgill, managing partner of Keebles, said: “We’re proud of our rich heritage which has served businesses and individuals in Yorkshire for over a century. It was important that our new identity acknowledged our past and reflected our modernity and standing as one of the region’s most experienced and respected firms.”

“As a practice with 19 partners whose commitment to develop and nurture top talent is reflected in our ongoing raft of appointments, our rebrand underpins our dynamic vision and expansion.”
