Founding partners Nick Jones, Dan Bickerstaffe and Simon Ost said the firm was expanding to keep pace with demand.

It recently opened a new office in the Cunard building in Liverpool to compliment its Manchester office at the Riverside complex.

Significant future growth is planned.

Now the firm has confirmed it is looking at Lancashire as its next area for expansion with an office in the Preston and central Lancashire area high on the agenda.

Nick Jones said: “We listen to our corporate clients and we tailor our support to their individual needs. Our corporate clients have always played a huge part in steering the firm’s development and they will continue to do so.”

Dan Bickerstaffe said: “e3 has a distinct advantage in having a highly experienced team of leading experts who genuinely enjoy using that expertise to resolve employment issues for our clients.” Simon Ost said: “Providing the same quality of legal support as the best law firms but doing so on a more cost effective basis has proved very attractive to the region’s businesses who went to get the best value from their legal spend.”
