The move comes after another record year for the South Yorkshire office with turnover rising to £2.8m this year with an additional 9 people joining the 40-strong team.
Success has been enjoyed across both the commercial and private client departments with the corporate team completing a record 26 deals with a total value of £136m in the last financial year.
The new floor has been designed and equipped to provide space for client presentations, seminars, training and an employee engagement area.
Michele continued, “We have had an exceptional year resulting in our rapidly expanding team outgrowing our offices. As we did not want to move from our central location, we were fortunate that the second floor became available to us so that we could increase our space with minimum disruption.”
Commenting further, Jonathan Oxley, Managing Partner of Lupton Fawcett, said,
“The office expansion coincides with our planned £1m investment in a new IT system which will provide seamless communication with our three offices in Sheffield, York and Leeds.
We have an impressive team of solicitors working within the firm and the latest technology will enable even greater collaboration and experience-sharing across the offices to provide our clients with the very best advice across all aspects of the law.”
