Law firm Shoosmiths has taken possession of its new Birmingham office. The Shoosmiths’ team completed the move to Two Colmore Square over the May bank holiday weekend. This involved the movement of all 180 legal advisers and support staff to Two Colmore Square with immediate effect from its former office at 125 Colmore Row. The 40,000 sq ft office is part of Nurton Developments’ successful Grade A office scheme in Birmingham and offers the largest floor plate in the city. The 21 week programme of office design and fit-out work was carried out by Claremont Group Interiors. The work on behalf of Nurton Developments included Cat A works, interior design, Cat B fit-out, furniture and audio-visual technologies.
Carol Light, head of facilities management for Shoosmiths said: “This office move was vital to our business and is in support of our business strategy to cater not only for growth across the various sectors but to provide a hub for our clients and partners supported by excellent communication links with the new office. The new office gives us a truly remarkable working environment and provides everything a modern law firm needs. Our staff can enjoy open plan working in contemporary surroundings and our clients can take advantage of an incredibly well equipped client suite.
Handover of the Birmingham office comes shortly after completion of ACH Shoosmiths’ new 11,000 sq ft Edinburgh office in the heart of the city’s financial district. The eight week programme comprised design, fit-out, furniture and audio-visual systems. The office is home to 84 staff. More information on working in Birmingham with Shoosmiths is available here.
