Leicester move adds up for accountancy firm

Mather Jamie has helped one of Europe’s largest accountancy firms open a new office in Leicester.

The commercial property specialist has acquired a 5,114 sq ft office suite at the Meridian Business Park on behalf of Mazars.

The new office, at 6 Dominus Way, was required to support the growth of Mazars, which has already created 10 new jobs as part of the expansion.

Alex Reid of Mather Jamie comments: “Mazars approached us with a view to finding offices in a prominent location in Leicester.

“They presented us with a number of objectives, which included high quality accommodation with space for company expansion, close proximity to other local businesses and ample parking, allowing us to search for offices that fitted their specific criteria and negotiate a good price on their lease at 6 Dominus Way.

“As Meridian Business Park sits just off the M1, its convenient setting makes these offices highly sought-after and popular with a large number of businesses.”

Chris Darlington of Mazars comments: “Earlier this year, Mazars made their intentions of opening a new Leicester office very clear by recruiting a number of high profile local partners and following it up by a broader recruitment programme.

“This meant suitable new premises were needed to base the new, full service Leicester team.

“Mazars are fully committed to the growth and development of the Leicester office, so an exciting and extensive recruitment plan is currently underway.

“We have already created 10 new jobs and expect to create a further 25 to 30 over the next 12 to 24 months.

“Key considerations were the quality of accommodation and infrastructure, being located within an area with a strong professional community feel and easy access for clients and staff, as well as availability of parking.

“The new premises suit our needs very well; the building offers ideal conference and meeting facilities and a pleasant environment in which to work.

“It also has the capacity to allow for future planned growth and development, and is easy for clients and business contacts to get to and to park.

“The service we received from Mather Jamie was excellent all round.

“They took the time to understand what we needed and why, and having done this carried out an extensive search which provided us with a number of choices.

“Thereafter, they took the lead in negotiations, helped make it all happen within the planned timeframe and all in all provided a high quality director-led service.”
