Law firm Fraser Brown has announced that it will be opening an office in Lincoln next month, making it the firm’s second city to its HQ in Nottingham.
Fraser Brown, which has a team of 120 professionals across three offices in Nottinghamshire, has taken the self-contained office on the Kingsley Office Park on Runcorn Road on the South West side of Lincoln.
The law firm currently works with a number of Lincolnshire-based businesses and had been looking for the right premises to accommodate its Lincoln team for a number of months.
Initially, the Lincoln team includes five full-time legal experts with supporting teams and the practice hopes to grow that organically over the coming 12-18 months. It is currently recruiting to expand the offering for its corporate, commercial and residential property departments in Lincoln.
Patrick Wood, managing partner at Fraser Brown, said: “Lincoln provides a great opportunity; with its continued investment into its infrastructure and proactive approach to development and supporting businesses, having a permanent presence in the city was a natural step for us.
“We are already an active member of the business community in Lincoln and in any successful region there is a need for legal services of the highest standards which we pride ourselves in supplying.
“Myself and the team are excited to be in Lincoln and look forward to the opportunities that will bring for the firm.
“This move is not just about growing the company but continuing to provide legal services that exceed client expectations.”
The Lincoln office was secured on behalf of Fraser Brown by Nottingham-based Commercial Property Partners (CPP) with Lincoln-based Pygott & Crone working on behalf of the landlord.
