Morecrofts complete move to Cotton Yard
Law firm Morecrofts has relocated to its impressive new headquarters at Liverpool’s Cotton Yard.
The Grade II-listed space, once the international nerve centre of the city’s booming cotton industry, has undergone a major refurbishment to transform into a state-of-the-art office space.
Morecrofts has now moved its entire city centre-based team into the building, which was most recently occupied by Liverpool’s Register Office and is accessed via a private courtyard on Old Hall Street.
Cotton Yard is part of the Bruntwood-owned Cotton Quarter, which also comprises Cotton Exchange and Cotton House, in the heart of Liverpool’s commercial district.
Morecrofts’ relocation follows its 200th anniversary in 2013 and marks the beginning of a new era for the firm, which organises the annual Merseyside Independent Business Awards and has four further offices across the region in Crosby, Wirral, Allerton and Woolton, as well as an office in London.
Managing partner Alison Lobb said:
“We have been looking forward to this moment for some time, so to finally get our feet under our respective desks is a great feeling for everyone at the firm.
“This is an iconic Liverpool address with such incredible history and we are excited to breathe new life into this beautiful building.
“These new premises give us a strategic platform to develop every area of our business and capitalise on the huge future opportunities that come from being one of the region’s most established law firms.
“They also offer a modern, fresh space for our talented teams to explore their potential and lead us into a new phase of the business as we look ahead to another successful 200 years.”
Colin Sinclair, director of property marketing at Bruntwood, said:
“It’s extremely satisfying to see this part of the Cotton Quarter begin a new chapter in its history with such an established pillar of Merseyside’s professional community.
“Morecrofts has significant plans for future growth and we look forward to giving Alison and the team every support in achieving those ambitions.”
