Since 2009, the firm has grown in size from 100 to 180 employees, which has resulted in the firm doubling its turnover to 12 million pounds at the end of the most recent financial year.
For the business the move into the City Point office on King Street, is all part of the firm’s vision to attract the best talent in Yorkshire and to continue to provide an inspirational, contemporary office space in which its teams can thrive.
The team at Blacks has taken over the entire 2nd floor of the building, with 11,000 sq ft of office space bringing seven departments together through an open plan interior with communal and breakout spaces. The office also boasts a number of state-of-the-art meeting rooms and an executive boardroom, which can be opened into a larger space for the many events and activities hosted by Blacks throughout the year; such as its breakfast networking events and training seminars.
Managing Partner, Chris Allen, has undoubtedly been a catalyst in the firm’s continued success. Speaking about the move and the future of Blacks, he said: “Having all the teams under one roof is great for team morale and will improve communication between them. This ability to quickly share knowledge will in turn provide clients with an even better and slicker service.”
“This move endorses our approach towards further growth with room for an additional 40 new employees, to accommodate the finest legal experts in the region.”
Blacks Solicitors’ reputation as one of the county’s leading practices was reaffirmed at the end of 2016 with the law firm winning both crucial cases for its clients and a handful of glittering awards throughout the past 12 months; including the coveted prize of ‘Law Firm of the Year (11-30 partners)’ for the second time in 3 years at the Yorkshire Legal Awards.
With public recognition for its charitable CSR work, the 4 hour call back promise and friendly, honest & professional advice, it is easy to see why Blacks Solicitors has earned the glowing reputation it has today.
