Shulmans expands at 10 Wellington Place

We are very pleased to report that we have now signed a lease to occupy two thirds of the 3rd floor of 10 Wellington Place.

Our firm has been occupying the 1st and 2nd floor of the building since our move to what was then the first Grade A new-build office in Leeds’ city centre for over five years, however due to rapid growth we are now in the process of expanding further.

There has been a significant increase in staff numbers since June 2014, from 140 to 180. In particular, we have recently added to our teams in construction, commercial dispute resolution and planning.

Tim Halstead, our Managing Partner, says: "One of the great attractions to us of this landmark development was the flexibility to expand. Having enjoyed double digit growth over each of the past five years we've been able to keep pace with that expansion."

"We're a successful business, competing strongly in the corporate legal sector alongside the very biggest firms, and we're attracting the very best recruits."

Fit-out work has just started and the new space should be occupied within a matter of weeks."
