Having made headlines in 2012 for becoming the UK's first commercial law firm to attract private equity investment, entrepreneurial professional services firm, Knights, is expanding into Derby.

Set to join other businesses on Pride Park , Knights plans to build a 30-strong professional team in Derby over the next 12 months. The firm has doubled its turnover to £20m with the number of professionals rising from 80 to more than 200 across its three existing offices in Newcastle-Under-Lyme, Chester and Cheltenham.

Derby fits well with our focus on communities where businesses and individuals value local expertise and quality
— David Beech, CEO at Knights

Knights has come to Derby after meeting with the Invest in Derby team at the popular embassy breakfast event at MIPIM earlier in the year. Since then, Marketing Derby has worked closely with Knights to assist with their expansion into Derby, providing hands-on support as and when required, and the firm has also come on board as a Marketing Derby Bondholder.

It’s fantastic news for the city that a professional services company such as Knights has chosen Derby as part of their continued expansion. We hope that Marketing Derby is adding value in all the right places, so that they can hit the ground running when their Derby office opens later in the summer
— Jimmy Drew, Inward Investment Executive at Marketing Derby
We are looking forward to joining the thriving business community in Derby and offering exciting career opportunities for the region’s talented lawyers and other professionals.

Knights worked with fellow Bondholder BB&J Commercial to find its new offices on Pride Park.
