We confirm One City Square location for Leeds office

We have confirmed the location of our new Leeds office and announced the appointment of three new partners as we launches our team in the city.

Our fourth UK office will occupy the first floor of One City Square, joining the likes of Deloitte, LDC and Schroders at the landmark city centre development.

We moved swiftly to build our presence in Yorkshire, with Marcus Armstrong being joined by fellow corporate partner Chris Peace and real estate partners Edwina Hewson and Kieran Wilkinson. All four partners have joined us from Knights, having previously been part of the Shulmans team acquired by Knights in 2020.

The appointments represent the first hires of our recruitment drive following our entry into the Leeds market, as we moves quickly to develop a full-service team based in Yorkshire to support the next stage of our strategic growth plan. A plan that has already delivered growth of more than 35% since 2017.

CEO Robert White said: “Our launch into Leeds marked a significant milestone for our firm and follows five years of consecutive growth. Our investment in One City Square has a significant role to play in our future in Yorkshire and is consistent with our objective to build our presence in the market and play our part as an integral member of the Yorkshire business community. It is also in keeping with our recent investments in Manchester and Lancashire, and will provide an agile, collaborative and best-in-class environment to support clients, colleagues and the broader business community from across the region.”

Managing Partner Nik White added: “The arrival of Chris, Eddie and Kieran, hot on the heels of Marcus, gives us a real sense of momentum as we look to quickly establish a team to match our existing full-service offering which supports a broad range of commercial and private clients. All come with significant pedigree and will no doubt pave the way for further additions which we will be announcing in the coming months.”
