Louise Ingram and Lisa Botterill

Law firm Shakespeare Martineau is relocating its Leicester office to No. 1 Colton Square in the city.

From June, the firm will take 9,500 sq ft on the first floor, relocating from No. 2 Colton Square where it has been for the past decade.

Louise Ingram, co-head of the Leicester office at Shakespeare Martineau, said: “It was time for a refresh of our Leicester office hub to better reflect our working practices and to bring together our people and clients in a rejuvenated, modern environment.

“No. 1 Colton Square offers an updated, accessible and agile space for our people and clients to work and collaborate in. Having previously been occupied by a tech company, it gives us a fantastic, modernised base on which we can put our personalised stamp.

“Following feedback from our people for greater flexibility, we launched our empowered working principles in 2021, which give our people flexibility on when and where they work, within the parameters of ensuring that we provide best service to our clients.”

Lisa Botterill, also co-head of Leicester, said: “We remain absolutely committed to Leicester for the long-term, recognised by our strong connections and heritage across the city and throughout the surrounding area. We look forward to continuing our investments in Leicester, growing our team and welcoming clients to our new office hub.”
