Blacks Solicitors unveil plans for growth after City Point move

Blacks Solicitors has moved to new premises in Leeds city centre and unveiled plans for further growth.

The firm has taken over the entire second floor of the City Point office on King Street which has 11,000 sq ft of office space, bringing seven departments together through an open plan interior with communal and breakout spaces. The office also boasts a number of state-of-the-art meeting rooms and an executive boardroom, which can be opened into a larger space for the many events and activities hosted by Blacks throughout the year; such as its breakfast networking events and training seminars.

Managing partner, Chris Allen, said that the move also gave the firm further room to grow, with space for a further 40 employees.

“Having all the teams under one roof is great for team morale and will improve communication between them. This ability to quickly share knowledge will in turn provide clients with an even better and slicker service,” he said.

Since 2009, the firm has grown in size from 100 to 180 employees, which has resulted in the firm doubling its turnover to £12 million at the end of the most recent financial year.

Blacks Solicitors won the award for Law Firm of the Year (11-30 partners) for the second time in three years at the Yorkshire Legal Awards last year.
