Hill Dickinson expands presence in Leeds

Commercial law firm Hill Dickinson has begun 2024 with a move into brand new offices at 11 Wellington Place, Leeds.

The move follows the signing of a lease agreement in May 2023 and forms part of the firm’s wider growth and sustainability strategy. It has relocated into one of the most sustainable office developments in Yorkshire.

Located in Leeds’ business district, the firm now occupies a full floor of the 10-storey building at 11 Wellington Place.

Since establishing a presence in Leeds in 2017, the firm has grown its team to over 40 people in the city, as well as expanded its service lines. Originally focused purely on healthcare, Hill Dickinson’s Leeds offering now includes corporate, banking, real estate, construction, employment and restructuring.

 

Craig Scott, CEO elect and head of Business Services Group, said:

“At Hill Dickinson, we’re continually seeking new opportunities for growth across all our offices. Leeds is a city that is seeing rapid expansion across a range of industries and sectors, which means there’s increased demand for legal services in the city – and we are responding to that. This brilliant new space reflects our strategic ambitions in a number of important areas: it allows us to meet growing demand from new and existing clients in and around the Yorkshire region, it aligns with our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint and it demonstrates our ongoing commitment to being part of a thriving business community in Leeds for the long term. 

 

Esther Venning, Hill Dickinson partner and head of Leeds office, said:

“It has been incredibly rewarding to see our Leeds office grow at such pace recently, now housing a team of more than 40 across a range of services. The Wellington Place move is an exciting next step to continue delivering on this growth.

“As one of the fastest growing legal centres in the country, Leeds is home to a host of incredible talent, with excellent universities and law schools right on our doorstep. This has created a buoyant market where we can attract strong talent at a range of levels, from new trainees to experienced partners. As we settle into our new office, the development of our people and growing our excellent team will remain at the forefront.”
