Client demand for a seamless service across a wider range of legal specialisms has enabled HCR to invest in both new people and modern, new offices and a larger team that will be based in the Avon building, on the same site as the University of Northampton’s Waterside campus, in the heart of a thriving, innovative community.
Investment in the new Central England office demonstrates the firm’s commitment to the area and will enhance its position as the leading law firm in the region. Joint Head of Office, Charlotte Thornton-Smith says, “Our new location provides the perfect springboard for continued growth which we anticipate will come from our expanded business services and private client offers along with our deep sector expertise which we provide to individuals and businesses in the region. I am excited about some of the new hires we have in the pipeline and look forward to being able to share more news about these soon.”
Dominic Hopkins, who shares the leadership of the new office with Charlotte, says, “This move provides new opportunities to our staff, both for personal growth and career development, as well as a wider range of colleagues with whom to collaborate and legal disciplines to explore. Since Hewitsons’ merger with HCR last year we have really valued being able to draw on the firm’s wider resources to the benefit of businesses and community in the region. As one of the most innovative regions in the UK we are delighted to be moving onto University of Northampton’s impressive Waterside Campus.”
