Head of office and partner Robin Webb said: “We’re delighted to move to such a prominent building and to create an exciting and dynamic workspace for our people. The new office space will provide us with an improved platform to service to our existing clients, grow our client portfolio as well as help us to retain our considerable talent and recruit new talent.
