CHESTER-based specialist commercial law firm DTM Legal, has opened new offices in Merseyside.

The expansion will see the law firm open an office in Century House, a landmark building in St Helens. Julie Mogan, partner at DTM Legal, said: “St Helens has a strong commercial heritage and presents a great opportunity for us as a regional office. We have served clients in the area for a number of years and we are really excited about having a local base from which we can both support clients and continue to grow our own business.”

Since the launch of DTM Legal in Chester in 2008, the firm doubled in size in its first year and won the Best Business Start Up Award in the Trinity Mirror Cheshire Business Awards in 2009.
