Over 250 guests help to celebrate the largest professional services move for 15 years
Walker Morris opened its doors to welcome over 250 clients and business partners last night at the official opening reception to celebrate its new double-award winning offices at 33 Wellington Street.
The relocation last month saw all 450 employees move into the 76,000 sq ft of reconfigured and renovated Grade A office space, reinforcing the firm’s position as the UK’s largest, single-site law firm outside London.
The new Wellington Street offices have been designed to provide an agile, premium working environment; with a hybrid of open, private and meeting areas; which will engender collaboration, and support flexible and seamless team working for the Firm’s multidisciplinary client teams.
The building also features a range of multifunction areas for employees to enjoy including its popular Ts&Cs café, tea bars, meeting pods and a unique south facing outdoor courtyard area, which was put to full use at the reception event.
Walker Morris has a distinctive strategy, operating from a single site centre of excellence in Leeds from which it services its national and international client base. The Firm has retained a dominant footprint within the region and is consistently ranked by Experian as one of the most active corporate law firms. At the same time the Firm has invested in developing national leading specialist teams enabling it to win over 70 per cent of its work from outside the region, including 20 per cent from clients based overseas.
