FS Legal invests in Altrincham Office Building to Facilitate Company Expansion
FS Legal Solicitors has acquired the freehold of Alpha House, 12 Oxford Road, Altrincham, from a private client of Regional Property Solutions, to relocate its business from 45 The Downs.
A specialist firm of award-winning lawyers, FS Legal advises high net worth individuals and corporate clients in commercial business and private investment.
After winning a raft of new clients during a highly successful 2017 FS Legal believes the investment in a prime piece of real estate in the heart of the town centre will enable further growth.
The 2,200 sq ft space in Alpha House spans the basement, ground and first floor – with the team set to take occupancy in spring following refurbishment.
The Manchester office of FS Legal is led by company partners Kit Sorrell and Julia Norris.
Julia Norris, Partner, FS Legal Solicitors said: “We are really pleased with the acquisition and look forward to moving the team into our new premises later this year.
“The essential ethos of the firm remains as it has from the outset: do right by the clients and do right by the staff - the rest will follow. We have carried this through our real estate strategy and have designed an office space that will concur with facilities to accompany the company’s growing staff count and client base.
“The team has been involved in many significant, multi-million-pound litigation cases and has seen huge growth over recent years as a result. We are looking to build upon this and with our growing client base we’re incredibly excited to continue our expansion into 2018.”
The office refurbishment at FS Legal’s Alpha House is being carried out by Vantage building consultancy and will involve enhancing the existing period features of the building whilst creating a contemporary office environment including bespoke client suites and breakout space.
Paul Wood, Director, Vantage Building Consultancy said: “Altrincham is becoming an ever-more attractive place for businesses. The town has received significant investment in the past year and continues to develop at pace with a variety of amenity at its core.
“The real estate market is an extremely competitive one in the town and we are delighted this deal has come to fruition. The refurbishment will create an office environment that we know fits the team’s ambitions and plans for growth. We are really looking forward to watching the process complete.”
Daniel Lee, director, Regional Property Solutions, who acted for the vendor, said: “This was an off-market transaction with a premium paid for this increasingly rare town centre freehold with the bonus of adequate parking”.
Behr & Co acted for the purchaser.
