Law firm Weightmans has unveiled plans for a new office at a landmark Manchester development in a move that will bring about 150 staff together under the same roof.
The Liverpool-headquartered firm will take 18,000 sq ft at Allied London’s high-profile No 1 Spinningfields scheme.
Under the plans, almost 150 Weightmans staff will be brought together from their current Piccadilly Place and Pall Mall Court locations.
Richard Corran, partner and head of the Manchester offices at Weightmans, said: “We are delighted to have secured space in what will be the statement building of the Spinningfields district.
“The move will unify and strengthen teams from our two Manchester offices, offer a superior client experience and respond to changing staff requirements as we embrace more efficient and flexible methods of working, giving us the opportunity to introduce a truly agile approach.
“Subject to client requirements, agile working will be introduced in Manchester, and staff will be given the support and facilities to work remotely for some of their week.
Chris Reay, Spinningfields estate director, said: “Allied London have championed new and flexible ways of working since 2012, and Weightmans move to No 1 signifies how the quality of our workspace offering is attracting best-in-class tenants to our developments.
“The firm will not only take some of the best grade A office space in the city, but they will also embrace new methods of working that have been informed by Allied’s extensive workplace survey with Creative Review.”
