Lupton Fawcett doubles its office size in Sheffield to accommodate growth

Lupton Fawcett has expanded into the second floor of its office on Bank Street in Sheffield.

The move comes after another record year for the Lupton Fawcett office, with turnover rising to £2.8 million this year and an additional nine people joining the 40-strong team.

Success was enjoyed across both the commercial and private client departments. The corporate team completed a record 26 deals with a total value of £136 million in the last financial year.

The new floor has been designed and equipped to provide space for client presentations, seminars, training and an employee engagement area.

Michele Phillips, head of the Sheffield office at Lupton Fawcett, said: “We have had an exceptional year resulting in our rapidly expanding team outgrowing our offices. As we did not want to move from our central location, we were fortunate that the second floor became available to us so that we could increase our space with minimum disruption.”

“The new fit out is impressive and provides our team and clients with first class meeting facilities and presentation rooms.”

Commenting on the expansion, Jonathan Oxley, managing partner of Lupton Fawcett, said: “The office expansion coincides with our planned £1 million investment in a new IT system which will provide seamless communication with our three offices in Sheffield, York and Leeds.”

“We have an impressive team of solicitors working within the firm and the latest technology will enable even greater collaboration and experience-sharing across the offices to provide our clients with the very best advice across all aspects of the law.”
