Rapid expansion for Manchester law firm as it creates 20 new legal roles in the North-West

A Manchester firm, which has quadrupled its workforce in less than 2 years, is pushing on with ambitious growth plans for 2023 by adding 20 staff to its legal team this month.

Barings Law, who specialise in representing consumers and businesses who’ve been victims of mis-selling, began fighting for justice on behalf of clients in 2009.

They’ve since become one of the leading tech-driven firms in the North-West having successfully won back millions in compensation for clients and invested a substantial amount of money into automation and AI.

The city centre firm is now on the hunt for 20 of the best legal minds comprising paralegals and solicitors to run its ever-expanding base of cases.

Practice Manager of Barings Law, Anil Kara, speaks about the positive strides the business has made over the last few years:

“I grow more and more proud of our achievements every day”, he said.

“To see how the firm has developed over the years is truly astonishing. There is a real appetite for automation within the business and investing in tech-driven processes, which will allow us to better serve our clients.

“The single biggest driver for us, is knowing we’re helping people get access to justice.  It can be daunting for an individual to take on corporate giants alone, which is why we have a track record of facilitating successful group actions.

“Our ethos is to treat every client as an individual and we’re motivated by the prospect of changing lives for the better.

“Diversifying our claim type portfolio and expanding our team, shows our commitment towards striving for excellence and never standing still.”

The private equity backed firm, which helps clients recover their losses around mis-sold vehicle finance (PCP/HP), business interruption and self-invested personal pensions amongst other claims, is now adding more high-profile data breach cases, namely FatFace and South Staffs Water, to its repertoire.

Among the firm’s many prominent wins includes recovering more than £13m in damages for clients following Carphone Warehouse’s £29 million FCA fine over the mis-selling of their ‘Geek Squad’ insurance product. 

Barings were also first to secure every leading judgment in unfair relationships involving high cost, short lending and breaches of the FCA’s Consumer Credit Sourcebook (CONC).

Mr Kara added: “We’re always looking to do more, settle more and make more of a difference. We also love giving bright talent the opportunities to thrive and make a real name for themselves in the industry. 

“Our unwavering responsibility to stand up for what is right, is at the centre of everything we do and expanding our firm will better allow us to do just that.”
