Foot Anstey, one of the UK's top 100 law firms, has launched its new Southampton office at The White Building in the heart of the city. The new Southampton office opens just 12 months since the firm first opened a presence in the city to meet the growing demands from clients within core sectors on the South East.
The move also supports several key initiatives: the delivery of an enhanced client experience with improved opportunities for agile, progressive and collaborative working and targeted talent acquisition.
John Westwell, said: "Our new Southampton space will support our strategy to broaden and strengthen our relationships with clients and targets in our core sectors. It is built on a period of sustained growth, particularly within our key sectors, and will facilitate further expansion. This impressive new space is a reflection of our ambition and our focus for the future, as well providing an environment for employees to thrive."
The firm employs over 500 people across seven locations, and Southampton follows Bristol's recent relocation to new offices. The growth achieved by the firm, under the leadership of John Westwell, has received significant industry attention. John has been previously identified as a 'Hot 100' by The Lawyer and also shortlisted for Managing Partner of the Year by Legal Business magazine.
JLL and Alder King were the property agents involved in the transaction.
