Construction law practice digs foundations for the future

Yorkshire-based specialist construction solicitors, Hawkswell Kilvington, has relocated from Wakefield to Leeds to fulfil its growth plans.

The firm, which is celebrating 21 years in business, has moved its team to a modern office space at Thorpe Park in Leeds.

With significant space for growth, the new office design incorporates state-of-the-art technology. As part of the move, the firm has invested heavily in its IT infrastructure, enabling its team to work more effectively whether they are in the office or working remotely.

Partner Daniel Silberstein said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for the firm. We have brilliant people, superb clients and a great future.

“The move is a significant investment, and underlines the confidence we have in our growth plans. The new office perfectly reflects our ethos as being a forward-thinking law firm.”

Partner Thomas Salter added: “We are also focused on driving the firm forwards in a more eco-friendly and sustainable way.

“We recently achieved the Carbon Neutral Plus Standard which recognises our efforts to reduce carbon emissions through energy and resource efficiency.

“The new space, including its EV charging points, will allow us to continue on our journey to a more sustainable future.

“The move also supports our recruitment ambitions. Staff retention is incredibly important to us – myself and Rachel Heald joined the firm as trainees – and the new office has already enhanced our ability to attract new talent.”
