Gordon Brown Law Firm (GBLF) has signed a ten-year lease, for 12,624sq ft of office space, which will be the firm’s third office and will complement existing office space in Chester-le-Street and Newcastle city centre.
The focus of the move is to have a technology-driven central hub for all of its teams that embraces the changing nature of the legal sector.
As well as a more collaborative working environment, the new offices will have better staff facilities, taking into account a number of suggestions made by GBLF staff during a period of consultation. The upgrade reflects the firm’s values and ongoing commitment to wellbeing in the workplace.
Kathryn Taylor, managing partner of Gordon Brown Law Firm, believes the move will be transformational helping to boost its presence within the local market.
“We started this journey over a year ago and we are all looking forward to the move to Team Valley. I am confident that the new office space will not only be somewhere our teams love to work, but also somewhere that clients will enjoy visiting for years to come too,” she says.
“This move represents a significant milestone for our firm and demonstrates our commitment not only to our people, but also our clients and the North East.
The new office space will give us room to continue to grow and give us increased visibility, to ensure we can offer our customers a more personalised service across the region.”
The new office design was created in conjunction with fit-out specialist Ultimate (Commercial Interiors) Ltd and features a modern bespoke design, a large staff breakout area and a flexible configuration which will support further expansion and growth.
Steve Cowley, associate director at Ultimate, adds: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to partner with Gordon Brown Law LLP at such an exciting time for their business, the entire design process and project discussions with the Gordon Brown team has been a pleasure.
“By working closely together, we have gained an insight into their business, including brand and core values and importantly the personalities within that will be reflected in our finished scheme. There are many impressive features to the proposed design and fit-out for Gordon Brown staff and clients alike to enjoy and we are all looking forward to seeing them in their new home in February.
