Nick Greenwood has joined the leading Yorkshire law firm, LCF Law, as business development and marketing director.
Nick has worked in the professional services sector for 25 years for banking, accountancy, and legal firms across Yorkshire.
In his new role, Nick will head a broad spectrum of business development and marketing projects at LCF Law and oversee the firm’s overall growth strategy. He will also work closely with its lawyers to develop new business opportunities throughout its corporate, commercial, and personal law divisions, across offices in Leeds, Bradford, Harrogate and Ilkley.
Nick said: “I started my career at Barclays as a branch manager in both the Leeds and Bradford flagship branches, soon progressing through SME into corporate banking and agriculture, supporting all types of businesses with their financial needs. After that, I became part of the senior leadership team at a mid-tier accountancy firm as head of sectors and then moved to a business development role at a 48-partner law firm supporting its achievement to become one of the most profitable law firms in the east of England.
“Whether it be providing finance, accountancy, or legal services, the key is always to focus on how firms can solve problems for their clients and deliver cost-effective solutions that help them achieve their business and personal goals.
“Joining LCF Law has seen me come full circle, returning to a Bradford headquartered business and I’m excited to join the firm. There is so much about LCF Law that makes it unique, including its people and its innovative and open approach, and I can’t wait to use my experience to help promote this fantastic firm across the UK.”
Simon Stell, the managing partner at LCF Law, said: “We have significant growth aspirations and Nick’s expertise and enthusiasm, will help us to deliver those. At the heart of any good business are its people. We recruit great people and help them to achieve their potential and career ambitions. The addition of Nick to the team will help the business and our lawyers meet our goals.
“We are problem solvers for our clients. It’s all about understanding how we can best help our clients tackle their legal issues to achieve the outcomes they seek. Nick’s appointment will help us to reach even more clients across a broad spectrum including the manufacturing, agricultural, healthcare, digital and charity sectors.”
