Law Firm Birketts expands into Kent with office space acquisition
Law firm Birketts has acquired 3,825 sq ft of office space after signing a five-year lease for the third floor of One Suffolk Way in Sevenoaks.
This acquisition, which was overseen by South East-based real estate advisors Stiles Harold Williams (SHW), reflects Birkett’s ongoing expansion in the South East following its merger with Kent’s Bachelor Solicitors.
Associate at SHW Thomas Tarn said: We started the search for the right space last year, working closely with the Birketts team to identify their needs in terms of office size, specification, and location. At the early stages of the search confidentiality was crucial, and by conducting the search on behalf Birketts we were able to keep their identity under wraps until negotiations were well progressed.
‘’Confirming One Suffolk Way as the preferred site, we then entered into negotiations with the landlord, negotiating the best terms for our client. In parallel, SHW’s BCD team commenced a pre-acquisition survey to identify any repair and Health & Safety issues in need of rectification.”
One Suffolk Way, owned by RO Properties, has had all of its common areas refurbished. The site has on-site car parking, cycle parking, a shower room, lockers and changing facilities and is the first Fitwel certified building in Sevenoaks.
Partner and head of employment and immigration at Birkett’s Jeanette Wheeler said: “I’m really excited to be bringing our high quality, pro-active, client-centric and friendly brand of legal advice to the people and businesses of Kent and beyond.
‘’This is an extremely positive time for the firm, and our new office in Sevenoaks is the perfect base for our continued growth. We look forward to inviting our existing and new clients and contacts in the region to visit and meet with us. Our thanks goes to SHW for their assistance in our expansion.”
