News And Events11/12/2018

Top 50 law firm, Keoghs, is celebrating its 50th birthday this week, after 12 months of milestones and achievements.

Originally formed as Keoghs Ritson in 1968, the last five decades has seen the firm expand to more than 1,700 employees based in seven locations throughout the UK; Bolton, Coventry, Liverpool, London, Glasgow, Manchester and Southampton.

The last year alone saw Keoghs complete the acquisition of Hill Dickinson’s highly regarded insurance business group, adding new areas of expertise, a strong Liverpool presence and propelling Keoghs into the UK’s top 50 law firms.

From a small regional practise in 1968, today Keoghs has cemented its position as a leading national provider of the full range of legal and claims expertise specialist to the insurance industry.

The firm has also recently won several awards including three prizes at the Insurance Fraud Awards, two high profile wins at the British Legal Technology Awards and Best Company for Apprentice Development at the Bolton Business Awards.

Celebrating the 50 year milestone, Chief Executive John Whittle, said;

“I’m proud of everything Keoghs has achieved since George Keogh and Thomas Ritson merged their practices back in 1968.

Over the 50 years we have taken the necessary steps to focus our resources exclusively on insurance so that we can meet the challenges of this dynamic market and become a leading player, making Keoghs what it is today.

I would like to thank all of our clients for their loyalty over the years, we look forward to many more years working with them.”
