Shakespeare Martineau has taken a lease on a new office in Lincoln city centre’s Cornhill Quarter. The latest hub for the growing national law firm will be headed up by Michael Squirrell.
Following a full refurbishment, the hub will host meeting and office space, as well as informal working spaces for visitors and collaboration areas. The firm launched in Lincolnshire in January 2021 with the appointment of corporate partner Michael Squirrell and litigation partner Jonathan Stork, who were joined that year by employment partner Helen Molloy and agriculture partner Amy Cowdell.
Shakespeare Martineau has since been on the lookout for a permanent space to accommodate its growing team and expanding client base, and said fit-out work at the St Mary’s Street base was expected to be complete either in late summer or the autumn.
Mr Squirrell said: “We absolutely love this building and know it will look fantastic after the work is completed. It’s been worth the wait to find the right space for our people and clients that offers us room to grow further.
“Lincoln is a fantastic place to live and work, with the city being home to a vast range of businesses from all manner of sectors – from start-ups to multinationals.
“The legal market has long suffered from losing talented people to the draw of national firms in larger cities, so the opportunity to set up as a leading national practice fully committed to supporting local businesses and private clients gives us the best of both worlds for our clients and our people.”
Amy Cowdell said: “As an accredited B-Corporation it was important to us to be located near public transport links to give our people and clients the option to use these services.
“What makes us different is our national backing, with more than 1,000 legal and business experts across the UK. Our clients are able to tap into the niche specialisms and wide-ranging experience we have across the firm, while also benefitting from our growing Lincoln team’s extensive knowledge of the local market.”
