National consultancy Excello Law has expanded its office network with the opening of a site in Staffordshire.

The office on Windsor Street in Newcastle-under-Lyme complements the firm's Snowhill office in Birmingham, which opened in 2019, and a move to larger facilities in Leicester earlier this year.

The Excello team in the area now numbers seven partner lawyers, including new joiner Dermot Callinan, as well as two support staff.

Employment partner Karen Coleman has been working with Excello Law as a consultant lawyer for the past five years.

She said: "The wider Stoke area is a strong commercial hub and it is great for us to have office facilities at the heart of our client base.

"Our team is all locally based and this solidifies our presence in the area, giving us a visible platform to recruit more consultant lawyers in the region."

Director Joanne Losty added: "We have the largest office network of any of the consultancy firms, and it was a natural extension of our growth ambitions in the central region to open new facilities in Staffordshire to support our team."
