Liverpool law firm unveils new home at landmark city centre building




Liverpool law firm unveils new home at landmark city centre building

Liverpool-headquartered, family-run law firm CEL Solicitors has unveiled its brand new office space as it sets its sights on an ambitious growth plan.

The company, which is currently based at Atlantic Pavilion on the Albert Dock, will take the entire 12th floor of Twenty Chapel Street from November, as it looks to expand its team and increase its presence within the city’s legal mix.

Set up in 2016, CEL Solicitors, which specialises in civil litigation, has seen more than a five-fold increase in turnover during the last 12 months alone with the upward curve set to continue.

And its upcoming move signals a new chapter for the business as it looks to further expand its group litigation, Data Breach and property litigation offering to clients and continue to build on its successful property disrepair team.

The new space will have capacity for almost 90 staff, an increase of more than 60 from the company’s current office, offering panoramic views of the city, River Mersey and the iconic Royal Liver Building.

It will also house a special ‘amphitheatre’ designed specifically for team presentations, group activities and social events, while break-out areas will feature table football, lounge space with bean bags and a ‘think swing’.

Director Jessica Hampson said: “This is an incredibly exciting time as we look to move into our new home and press on with our plans for expansion. At the heart of our ethos is putting people before profits – it underpins everything we do, from looking after our clients to ensuring our staff are happy at work, and our new office space completely reflects this.

“Since our launch, we’ve truly gone from strength to strength, which is testament to the dedication and talent of our team. The sectors in which we work are constantly evolving and it is more important than ever before to attract – and retain – the best talent, so our culture, values and environment need to be on point if we are going to bring in the industry’s finest and, of course, the rising stars.”

In 2018, Jessica was joined by her husband Paul Hampson, previously managing director of Hampson Hughes, to head up the development of new practice areas within the civil litigation field

As new tenants of Twenty Chapel Street, CEL Solicitors will also have access to the building’s mix of amenities, including an on-site coffee shop, cycle storage, showers and bookable meeting rooms.

Ian Murray, Director at Canmoor, said: “Twenty Chapel Street is an extremely sought-after location in the city  centre, not only because of its enviable location, but its high quality office space that is home to tenants such as LFC, Barclays and Ernst Young, to name a few.

“From the outset, CEL Solicitors had a clear vision of where they wanted to take the business and what they needed from the space in which they would do this, so we’re thrilled to have them on board as they move into their next chapter.”

Jessica added: “Although we’re widening our service offering and continuing to grow, we’re passionate about staying true to our Liverpool roots and our values – we want to keep what makes us different to the bigger law firms across the city and champion how our personality makes us stand out from the crowd, and we’re confident that our new home will help us do just that.”

CBRE acted on behalf of CEL Solicitors and Worthington Owen acted for Canmoor.
