A North-West law firm has announced the creation of an additional 70 jobs in its housing disrepair (HDR) department, as it looks to become the leading firm in the sector.
In the next six months, Veritas Solicitors will double its housing head count to meet the growing needs of those seeking justice against their landlords.
The Manchester firm based at Cardinal House will recruit more solicitors, trainee solicitors, admins, team leaders and staff for its litigation and client onboarding departments.
The expansion has been a result of the firm’s incredible success in dealing with housing disrepair cases and a surge in its monthly caseload.
The doubling means that more than 10 recruits would need to be hired each month taking the department to 140 strong.
Managing partner, Faraz Fazal, said the firm has grown quickly but shows no signs of slowing down.
He said: “Our commitment to providing unparalleled legal services is unwavering.
“The decision to double our staff in the HDR department is a strategic investment in our capabilities and also a result of more and more people seeking justice for the dire living conditions they find themselves in.
“We believe it will enable us to deliver even greater value to our clients, ensuring we continue to meet and exceed their expectations and most importantly secure the justice they deserve.”
The firm has previously established itself as specialists in dealing with housing disrepair, financial mis-selling, personal injury, and clinical negligence.
The company’s commitment to tech-driven processes has led to the recovery of millions for its clients since 2007.
With previous plans to recruit more people into the firm, Veritas Solicitors envisions itself opening more departments to cover immigration, industrial disease, commercial and employment law.
To accommodate growth, the firm is now occupying three floors at its Manchester HQ making it one of the fastest growing businesses in the city.
Mr Fazal added: “At Veritas Solicitors, our clients are at the heart of everything we do.
“This expansion marks a new chapter in our journey, one where we continue to set the standard for legal excellence.
“With a strengthened HDR department, we are poised to navigate the complexities of tomorrow’s legal challenges and deliver outcomes that exceed expectations.
“Along with my incredible team, our commitment to innovation and client satisfaction remains steadfast, and we look forward to the positive impact this expansion will have on the services we provide.”
