Fladgate, a commercial law firm who have recently featured in the news as solicitors for Earl Spencer, has announced new plans to consolidate two previous offices into one in the centre of London.
The company had previously occupied two Mayfair offices however have now announced plans to move into a single property at 16 Great Queen Street. This new property offers 41,750 sq ft of office space spread over five floors – the firm will however initially sub-let one floor.
On the 19th August, Fladgate moved into the new building, which has received a BREEAM Excellent rating and features electronic doors, open plan floors and Cumbrian slate walling, following a five year plan to support future growth plans.
Chairman of Fladgate, Paul Leese, said, “The choice of Covent Garden came from a desire to find the best fit, particularly for staff – culturally, practically and economically.”
He added, “For clients, it’s about retaining our culture at the same time as bringing us within the catchment of the City and Mid-Town.”
The area of Covent Garden has recently seen a boost to their economy, drawing in a mass of crowds with the opening of an Apple store, sure to attract a lot of customers to the area, particularly with recent successes such as the iPad and iPhone 4.
