Law firm agrees 10-year deal for city centre offices

Chapel Quarter, Nottingham

Law firm Potter Clarkson is moving to new offices in the heart of Nottingham city centre.

The intellectual property specialist has signed a 10-year lease for 15,000 sq ft at Chapel Quarter.

Potter Clarkson plans to move in next January after refurbishment works have been completed.

The office space will be stripped back to a shell, fully refurbished and fitted out as Grade A offices by Claremont Group Interiors, with an element of the cost being funded by the landlord.

Steve Smith, managing partner of the Potter Clarkson group, said: “We are excited by the opportunity to design and develop a new working environment that supports greater flexibility and productivity – something that is tailor-made for our staff and clients.

“Our new office will provide the highest quality environment to meet the new and future needs of our business, ensuring that Nottingham remains the beating heart of our firm.”

The lease negotiations were overseen throughout by Roger Davis of Geo Hallam & Sons and supported by Freeths. Additional support was provided by Oval Real Estate, as advisers to the landlord, along with Mark Tomlinson at FHP who acted for the outgoing tenant Adrak in the surrender negotiations.
