£1m investment in new office for Northern firm

A fast-growing Northern full service law firm is to invest £1m in relocating to new offices as it plans to create a “state-of-the-art environment” for its lawyers. 

Burnetts Solicitors LLP, which has offices in Newcastle, Carlisle and Cockermouth, is relocating the Newcastle office from its current location on Dean Street to 1 Citygate. The move is set for early 2024 and will see the firm occupy the 7th floor of the building.

The design will follow the same pattern as the company’s Carlisle office with more than 60 work stations as well as meeting rooms, a hub where staff can gather and an eatery. The new look office will be created to ensure a “collaborative work environment” for both the team and clients and has been designed to take into account people being able to split their time between home and office working.

Nick Gutteridge, Managing Partner, said the move was “to allow for the next period of growth.”

“Dean Street has served us very well but we now need a larger space to enable us to create an environment where we can recruit and retain staff who buy into our culture and our values,” he said.

“At the same time we believe this will also work extremely well for our clients.”

The firm operates across a number of sectors including banking, commercial property, corporate, employment and litigation and describes itself as “one of the north’s largest law firms.” The move, it says, will consolidate its position in the region with further growth plans for the future.
