Firm hits three-year milestone in the city
Law firm Bevan Brittan is significantly expanding its office space in Leeds, signing terms to double its Toronto Square office space, in the centre of the city, on a ten year lease.
The expansion of its floor space is needed to meet the growth in staff, with the team expected to double over the next 3-5 years.
Bevan Brittan opened its Leeds office three years ago in September 2015, since when business has increased steadily with a number of hires to meet demand. There are currently ten partners based in Leeds. Notable clients include Yorkshire Housing; Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust; A Shade Greener; Hornbeam Park and Sheffield City Council.
Michael Boyd, Head of the Leeds office at Bevan Brittan, said: “We are delighted to be doubling our space in Leeds. After three busy and successful years, this underlines our long-term commitment to the Yorkshire business community. We are here to stay, we’re growing and we greatly look forward to continuing to support private businesses and public organisations around the region and beyond. There is a vibrant economy here and we’re very happy to be part of it.”
Duncan Weir, Managing Partner at Bevan Brittan, commented: “Our Leeds office is an important part of the firm and we are very pleased to be making the investment to enable it to grow in line with client demand for the future. Combined with our offices in Birmingham, Bristol and London, our Leeds operation gives us national reach and enables us to support the ambitious and active Northern economy. Members of the Leeds team also regularly work on national projects for clients around the country.
"We are taking the opportunity to refurbish the new office space which will be laid out in a way that supports flexible and agile working patterns."
Bevan Brittan was advised in the deal by agents GVA.
