Tyr Law strengthens commercial litigation offering with new appointment

Leeds-based Tyr Law has strengthened its commercial litigation offering with the recruitment of Rebecca Birkby.

Birkby has joined as a senior associate having spent the past 11 years at London firm RPC.

Tyr Law’s commercial litigation team, which was founded in 2019 by partners Alistair Kennedy and Matthew Fidler, has now grown to include six fee earners.

Commenting on Birkby’s appointment, Kennedy said: “We are delighted that Rebecca has joined the team. We have quickly established a reputation as a top-quality boutique commercial practice and our commercial litigation team continues to grow and receive recognition, whilst delivering great outcomes for our clients.”

“Rebecca is a fantastic addition, having spent several years with a leading disputes practice, as have all of our partners and solicitors, and her recruitment further demonstrates our commitment to recruiting lawyers of the highest calibre.”

Birkby added: “I am really pleased to have joined the litigation team at Tyr Law and to be a part of their growth. I am looking forward to helping continue their success story as a leading boutique commercial practice, working with great people and clients.”

Tyr Law moved into new office space at 36 Park Row in Leeds last year. 

After a strong initial period, the boutique law firm expanded and committed to a multi-year lease.
