Law firm Bond Turner is opening a second office in Liverpool city centre in addition to its base at Bruntwood’s Plaza.

Bond Turner describes itself as a “niche” law firm specialising in areas including personal injury, professional and clinical negligence and defamation. It is taking a 5,104 sq ft at Downing’s No 1 Old Hall Street, which is just a short walk from its current base.

Downing is refurbishing 26,000 sq ft of office space at the building to what it claims will be grade A standard. The suite taken by Bond Turner is the first to be refurbished. It will be followed by a 10,000 sq ft space on the fifth floor.

Works have included the installation of full height windows overlooking Old Hall Street, a statement entrance, and access to a new reception area complete with showers, breakout areas, and meeting spaces.

The expansion follows a sustained period of growth for Bond Turner. The firm’s Dawn O’Brien said: “The move marks another milestone in our growth plan. The facilities at No 1 Old Hall St have helped us to attract a team of exceptional litigators and increase capacity to deliver fantastic results for our clients.

“The location is ideal with the transport links literally on our door step and the facilities are perfect for our people. We believe that the working environment is a pivotal part of business success and it is important that our people are working in a space that is an enjoyable place to be.”

John Clegg, head of property management at Downing, added: “Downing has worked closely with our expert partners to upgrade and transform our upper ground floor to create an outstanding, open-plan space of the best possible quality with floor to ceiling windows and fantastic frontage onto Old Hall Street.

“Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we have also adapted all of our buildings to ensure they are in line with Public Health England guidance and emerging industry wide safe working practices.

“Bond Turner’s arrival marks the successful culmination of the first phase of our wider plans to develop more grade A office space in the heart of Liverpool’s commercial district and we look forward to continuing this.”
