The US legal brand has taken over Wakefield-based Beaumont Legal and is expecting to clear all associated regulatory hurdles by the end of 2016. Beaumont has four partners and 160 employees.

This requires the perfect blend of technology, lawyers, and other expertise, and Beaumont Legal is an important piece of that jigsaw.' Source: Yorkshire Post
