Yorkshire-based specialist construction solicitors, Hawkswell Kilvington, has relocated from Wakefield to Leeds to fulfil its ambitious growth plans.
The firm, which is celebrating 21 years in business, has moved its team to a modern office space at Thorpe Park in Leeds, a thriving and progressive hub with a raft of amenities.
With significant space for growth, the new office design incorporates state-of-the-art technology and provides a welcoming environment in which its team can work collaboratively and efficiently with clients.
As part of the move, the firm has also invested heavily in its IT infrastructure, enabling its team to work more effectively; whether they are in the office or working remotely.
Partner, Daniel Silberstein said, “This is an incredibly exciting time for the firm. We have brilliant people, superb clients and a great future. The move is a significant investment, and underlines the confidence we have in our growth plans. The new office perfectly reflects our ethos as being a forward-thinking law firm.”
Partner, Thomas Salter said, “We are also focused on driving the firm forwards in a more eco-friendly and sustainable way. We recently achieved the Carbon Neutral Plus Standard which recognises our efforts to reduce carbon emissions through energy and resource efficiency. The new space, including its EV charging points, will allow us to continue on our journey to a more sustainable future. The move also supports our recruitment ambitions. Staff retention is incredibly important to us (myself and Rachel Heald joined the firm as trainees), and the new office has already enhanced our ability to attract new talent. Long may that continue.”
The firm represents a number of blue-chip clients, including John Sisk and Son, Shepherd Construction and Briggs & Forrester, and has recently gained recognition as a Tier 1 firm in the Legal 500.
