EY Law is aiming to more than treble in size in the U.K. and Ireland over the next three years, its leader has said, with a hiring spree that could see it recruit an extra 800 lawyers.

The accountancy giant’s legal division currently employs around 200 lawyers in the U.K., but Philip Goodstone, head of EY Law in the U.K. and Ireland, said this could grow to 1,000 lawyers in the coming years.
