New city centre base for leading law firm

NewLaw Solicitors has acquired the entire second floor of Bristol’s Tower Wharf office building.

The firm has taken a five year lease on the second floor which totals 13,545 sq ft of open plan high quality, sustainable office accommodation and the building has a BREEAM Rating ‘Excellent’.

The deal was agreed by joint agents DTZ and Hartnell Taylor Cook LLP acting on behalf of The Trustees of Rockspring Hanover Property Unit Trust.

Tower Wharf is located in the heart of Bristol city centre, overlooking the floating harbour and within 10 minutes’ walk of both Temple Meads Railway Station and Bristol’s award winning Cabot Circus Shopping centre.  New Law will be joining existing occupiers Lambert Smith Hampton, The Oracle Corporation and The Insolvency Services.

James Rodge of Rockspring said: “Tower Wharf provides an attractive working environment set in a very convenient location within the city providing easy access to fellow businesses and we are delighted New Law will be moving to the second floor.“

Andy Heath, Director, Office agency at DTZ in Bristol, commented: “NewLaw chose Tower Wharf because of the quality of the newly remodelled reception area and approach along with the highly efficient floor plate, allowing them to occupy the building far more efficiently than  other comparable buildings. Its location also enables easy access to Temple Meads station and Cabot Circus and we look forward to welcoming NewLaw to the building.”

Jon Fitzpatrick, Head of NewLaw’s Bristol office, said: “Over the past couple of years we’ve successfully established ourselves as a leading firm in Bristol. We ranked in the Legal 500 for the South West region in 2014 and business is going from strength to strength. As a result, we were looking for larger premises to accommodate our growing team. Tower Wharf is the perfect location for us as it’s easily accessible and right in the heart of the city. We’re looking forward to settling into our new home.”
