Stowe Family Law takes space at Minerva office building in Leeds

Stowe Family Law, the UK’s largest specialist law firm, has taken space at Evans Property Group’s Grade A Minerva office building in Leeds’ Bond Court city centre development.

The law firm has agreed half a floor, comprising 2,631 sq ft on the second floor on a six year lease term at the extensively upgraded Minerva building, which offers prime space arranged over ten floors.

Stowe Family Law is relocating from smaller premises at Portland Street in Leeds as part of a rapid expansion plan following its acquisition by private equity house, Livingbridge, in February 2017.

Evans Property Group injected life into the Bond Court area of Leeds City Centre with a major £25 million investment to create high quality commercial and leisure space in addition to extensive public realm works.

In collaboration with Leeds City Council, the team’s five-year project has now transformed the business district, with the office buildings of Minerva and Capitol providing much-needed Grade A, BREEAM Excellent space.

Since its extensive refurbishment, Minerva has attracted a host of high calibre tenants, including three recent lettings to; corporate finance practice Sentio Partners LLP, leading data and services provider Proact IT and specialist business advisory firm FRP Advisory.

Richard Bean, Asset Manager at Evans Property Group, said: “We are delighted to welcome such a highly regarded law firm to Minerva as a new base to support its expansion plans.

“The City of Leeds is a great place to be as a leading financial and legal centre and Minerva is a prestigious address with access to a wide range of high calibre fellow tenants such as global financial services company, UBS and Standard Life.”

Clem McDowell, Senior Surveyor at JLL, added: “This latest deal adds to the continuous success of the building in attracting a number of discerning tenants. The building is now almost full with circa 1,500 sq ft of space remaining.”
