Following the reduction of rent to £25 per sq ft at the end of 2008, Capsticks become 35 Newhall Street’s first tenant.
Suzanne Durey, a partner and property lawyer at Capsticks, said: “We are delighted with our accommodation at Newhall Street which represents a new phase of growth and development for our company. The office gives us the prominent ground floor ‘shop front’ location that we wanted to make our presence known in Birmingham, ideally situated right in the heart of the commercial core.
We have a very successful track record in London and the South East and it has always been part of our strategic vision to open elsewhere in UK. This, combined with client demand and winning a place on the Healthcare Purchasing Consortium (HPC) framework for the West Midlands, made Birmingham a clear favourite to open our first office outside London. We act for healthcare clients all over the UK but opening an office in Birmingham, will help make us a truly national firm.” Malcolm Jones, surveyor at KWB said “35 Newhall Street provided an ideal location and was the perfect solution for Capsticks needs. Located on Newhall Street they are situated in the prime location of the ground floor and central city.”
