Herbert Smith to open Belfast office to handle disputes document review

Herbert Smith is set to launch a new base in Belfast to handle volume disputes work. The office, which will open in April 2011, will principally focus on reviewing and analysing large volumes of documents from major contentious work, notably in litigation, arbitration and regulatory investigations. The Belfast base, which will be wholly owned and controlled by Herbert Smith, will be led on the ground by London-based Libby Jackson, a solicitor currently in a practice management role, who will relocate to Northern Ireland in early 2011.
