Commercial, private and personal injury practice strikes deal with Bruntwood and will relocate its 15-strong team from their current base at 5 Temple Square. Tony McDonough reports.
Bruntwood has secured Liverpool’s first major office deal of 2017 after Armstrong Solicitors agreed to take 22,575 sq ft at the Plaza in St Paul’s Square.
The law firm will relocate its 150-strong team from its current base at 5 Temple Square. The practice will be doubling its space.
Bruntwood has undertaken a sustained period of refurbishment at The Plaza since it first acquired the building in 2007 and this latest fifth-floor letting takes its total occupancy to more than 95%.
Armstrong Solicitors was founded in Liverpool in 2006 and offers a range of commercial, private and personal injury claims services to clients across the UK.
Specialist areas include commercial litigation, conveyancing, professional negligence, workplace accidents and defamation.
It joins a host of other professional services firms at the Plaza, including Investec, Weightmans and Plexus Law.
Dawn O’Brien, chief executive at Armstrongs, said: “The business has achieved significant growth in recent years through commitment, hard work, expansion and diversification.
“Armstrongs is now an established nationwide presence across a number of legal services, including its professional/clinical negligence division, Been Let Down.
“These are exciting times and by relocating and significantly expanding our office footprint in the city, we have gained a new, contemporary home for our excellent team.”
Matt Lee, head of sales at Bruntwood, added: “This is a major letting with an established and respected business, so understandably there was much competition across the Liverpool property market.”
