Frenkel Topping hosted a party to celebrate the launch of its first Birmingham Office, attracting 100 guests from the legal sector across Birmingham and the wider Midlands.

The launch kick-started the expansion of the AIM-listed specialist IFA (headquartered in Manchester) into five core cities: Birmingham, London, Leeds, Cardiff and Bristol.

To evoke a flavour of Birmingham, the micro artist Willard Wigan MBE joined Frenkel Topping and guests at the recently opened Bar Opus at One Snowhill, following his recent, sold-out exhibition at Birmingham Library. ​

Work from two other successful contemporary artists from Birmingham, Temper and Luke ​Burton,​ were also displayed during the course of the evening.​

Frenkel Topping chose to support Headway West Midlands as its charity partner for the evening. Headway West Midlands offers often life-changing support and hope to those who have suffered from serious brain injuries across Birmingham. A charity raffle raised more than £450 in only a couple of hours for the charity.
