DAC Beachcroft’s Leeds office re-elects Michael Peeters as Location Head

Published 8 January 2019

Michael Peeters has been re-elected as Head of DAC Beachcroft’s Leeds office at St Paul’s House, Park Square. He has held the role since 2015.

DAC Beachcroft's Leeds office is the firm's third largest office location, after London and Bristol, and has over 300 colleagues. Michael's time at the helm so far has seen a significant development of the firm's full service commercial law offering to businesses and large organisations in the local Yorkshire and wider Northern market. Growth has been especially good in the sectors the firm focusses on, including financial services and health; these combine with the firm's technology law expertise to result in strong 'fintech' and 'healthtech' practices in Leeds.

Michael, commenting on his re-appointment, said, “This is an exciting time for our office here in Leeds. My continued focus will be on driving growth across the North of England, working closely with colleagues in our Manchester and Newcastle offices.

“Leeds is a thriving city which offers us fertile ground for growth, and we look forward to building on our strong presence here. The firm is healthy, competitive and ambitious – as evidenced by our recent financial performance and our impending move to a new flagship headquarters building in the City of London – and we in Leeds will be instrumental to the firm’s continued success.

“I look forward to supporting and expanding our hard-working team in Leeds so that they can thrive in, and enjoy, their working lives. We are well-placed to meet the challenges of the future: we have a great combination of legal talent, a wide ranging portfolio of services and a modern, agile office.”

DAC Beachcroft’s Senior Partner Virginia Clegg commented, “Michael has been a fantastic Location Head, and I am delighted that he is able to build on the foundation he has created in Leeds.”
