Hill Dickinson has become the latest organisation to choose Wellington Place
The leading commercial law firm is relocating to 11 Wellington Place. Occupying 9,000 sq ft, Hill Dickinson is substantially increasing its presence in the city as it continues to grow at pace. The firm’s Leeds team, which is set to move later this year, has welcomed 12 new members of staff in the last 12 months.
Hill Dickinson’s 40-strong Leeds team is currently focused on healthcare, corporate, real estate and construction. The move to Wellington Place is part of the firm’s long-term strategy to build a comprehensive business services offer within the city.
The move supports the firm’s drive to improve the sustainability of its operations, with buildings 11 & 12 Wellington Place rated EPC A and BREEAM Outstanding. They were the first outside London and the fourth in the UK to achieve a NABERS Design Reviewed Target Rating of Five Stars or above.
Paul Pavia, Head of Development at MEPC, the asset manager and developer behind Wellington Place, said: “Hill Dickinson has gone from strength to strength in Leeds and we are pleased to be supporting the firm here at Wellington Place as it continues its growth journey.
“As a forward-thinking business Hill Dickinson is committed to operating sustainably and its move to Wellington Place will support this important agenda.
“We continue to build upon our vibrant neighbourhood here at Wellington Place and we look forward to Hill Dickinson becoming a part of our growing business community.”
Esther Venning, Hill Dickinson partner and head of Leeds office, added: “Having operated within Leeds for five years now, our team has grown considerably in that time. We are in a position to accelerate these plans even further as we expand our offering to new and existing clients. As such, we require an inspiring space that can grow alongside us, 11 Wellington Place is perfectly placed to offer this in the heart of the city.
“11 Wellington Place boasts impressive green credentials, providing us with a new home that is fit for the future and exceeds our environmental requirements. We are incredibly excited to begin the move so our people and clients can take full advantage of this impressive new development.”
