Boutique Law Firm rebrands on first anniversary of Linskills acquisition
Rapidly expanding law firm Astraea Legal has rebranded to Astraea Linskills with effect from September 1st. The boutique law firm, criminal and commercial litigation specialists, Astraea Legal acquired long-established Liverpool based law firm Linskills in October last year, the purchase marked the start of a rapid expansion programme for the progressive law firm which has seen them grow from 7 to 24 members of staff in just over 7 months. The increased level of business, which shows no sign of slowing down, has cultivated a portfolio of local, national and international clients and has seen case-loads across all departments more than double. Linskills was founded by Julian Linskill, who remains with the practice, in 1978 and has over 40 years experience of litigation in the North-West and beyond.
Founder of Astraea Linskills Nama Zarroug said “When we acquired Linskills last year, little could we have anticipated the extent of the rapid business growth we were about to navigate. To triple our team and more than double our local, regional, national and international case load across our offices in Liverpool and London has been quite an achievement with many new operational practices in place and teams who, due to COVID restrictions, were working remotely. ”
The new generation law firm has seen case loads across all departments increase in excess of 100% over the past ten months, whilst readapting the business operationally to cope with pandemic restrictions and lockdown guidelines, investing in technology and COVID safe operational practices to ensure business interruption was minimised and client confidence, representation and delivery services were maximised.
Nama continued “We are delighted to be able to incorporate Linskills into our company name and proud to include a brand with such great heritage in the city. Astraea Linskills has become an amazing team and together we will continue to grow”
Astraea Legal was founded in 2016 by Nama Zarroug who welcomed James Roochove and Sara Perischineto to the Board, along with a hand-picked team of highly experienced professionals. Astraea Legal service clients locally, nationally, and internationally and their combined areas of expertise span services ranging from all aspects of regulatory investigations, criminal, civil and commercial litigation as well as commercial property law, family, electoral, welfare benefit and motoring and licencing law.
The future is a very busy and very bright one for Astraea Linskills!
