National law firm makes major investment in new Leeds office space

National law firm Freeths has made a major investment in new office space at Central Square on Wellington Street, Leeds, marking 10 years since the firm launched in the city.

The offices will encompass Freeths’ agenda of continuously investing in sustainability and reducing carbon footprint as it records ambitious year-on-year-growth with recent turnover up by 14.9% to £129 million – an increase of £17 million from last year.

With a circa 80-strong team, the focus of the new Leeds office design is to provide a flexible working environment that embraces Freeths’ working culture for the future.

With extensive consultation with staff, the new space is designed to foster the benefits of working in a dynamic and ergonomic workspace. The new office will support an improved footplate to accommodate the business’s needs with a multi-purpose, larger and more appropriate premises.

Managing Partner of Freeths’ Northern Offices, John May, said: “Our new office concept will take into account the key elements needed to create a collaborative and functional working environment for the ambitious, talented and dedicated staff that underly Freeths’ success.

“The design includes areas that are varied and versatile to facilitate productive and efficient use of the office space. The design provides areas for desk sharing, meeting with clients, quiet working spaces and multifunctional rooms equipped for training, client meetings and staff wellbeing. With an extensive cutting-edge media room this is certainly an avant garde, post covid workplace.

“Rather than paying lip service to the green agenda, Freeths have thought seriously about how to reduce their carbon footprint and this was a key consideration in the Leeds office design in collaboration with Dentons.

“As an ambitious law firm, the expansion of the Leeds office will facilitate our growth agenda.”
