35 jobs for city
Fixed fee law firm opens Glasgow office
The business, which provides fixed fee support services, is expected to employ 35 staff in the new outlet over two years.
Mark Ellis, chief executive (pictured), said: “For us, Glasgow was the ideal base to launch our growth ambitions in Scotland.
“We estimate that less than 20% of organisations in Scotland currently use fixed fee professional support services and we know, from the growing demand for our services across the UK, that the market potential is significant.
“Over the next three years, we aim to treble our existing customer base in Scotland and our investment now in new infrastructure and new talent reflects our serious intentions to grow in Scotland.”
The firm was established in Chester in 2004 and has grown to employ 175 people across the UK, supporting around 10,000 employers of all sizes from all sectors.
The Glasgow office was officially opened by Councillor Frank McAveety, leader of Glasgow City Council.
He said: “I am delighted to see Ellis Whittam opening an office in Glasgow, another vote of confidence in the city from an employer looking to grow in a business-friendly environment.
“Even more pleasing for me is their commitment to recruit key positions in their team, offering fantastic opportunities for local people to gain high-quality jobs.
“Glasgow is an attractive location for business and employees, and I wish everyone at Ellis Whittam’s Glasgow office every success.”
