Tech-driven Manchester law firm Barings, which has quadrupled its workforce in less than two years, plans to add a further 20 staff to its legal team this month.
Barings Law specializes in representing consumers and businesses who’ve been victims of mis-selling and began fighting for justice on behalf of clients in 2009.
It has since become one of the leading tech-driven firms in the North-West having invested heavily in automation and AI.
The city center 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 Anil Kara said: “I grew more and more proud of our achievements every day. 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. 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 more prominent wins was recovering more than £13m in damages for clients following Carphone Warehouse’s £29 million 2019 FCA fine over the mis-selling of their ‘Geek Squad’ insurance product.
