Coventry firm moves to larger premises, with plans to recruit more legal staff
Coventry-based law firm Band Hatton Button are expanding into larger premises in the city, in line with its current growth plans.
Band Hatton Button currently occupies 7,500 square feet of office space on Warwick Road in Coventry, but is moving to Earlsdon Park on Butts Road to acquire 11,500 square feet of open-plan office space on a 15-year lease. The firm will move during the Easter break in April.
A spokesperson said that the move heralded a new era for Band Hatton Button, which has grown its workforce from 62 to 82 and increased its budget from £3.5 million to £4.5 million since forming in 2013, as a result of a merger between Varley Hibbs, Button Legal and Band Hatton.
Managing director Mark Moseley said:
“This office move is laying the foundations for us to realise our long-term ambitions to grow – both organically and through acquisitions.
“We are nearing maximum capacity in our existing offices, whereas the new space will enable us to grow our workforce to around 120 staff, which has been our plan for some time.
“Extra office space is key for us, as we are keen to attract new talent into the firm, which will help us to diversify our client-facing services.
“We are particularly on the lookout for individuals with commercial expertise in the agriculture and construction sectors, which are going to be two big areas of focus for us over the coming months and years.
“We’ve enjoyed a successful journey of growth since the business’ merger in 2013, notably more recently with Coventry’s in-demand residential and commercial property markets, which is showing no signs of slowing down.
“We are in the heart of a city that is attracting more students than ever before, is at the forefront of developing driverless cars and is preparing to become UK City of Culture in 2021 – the future is bright for Coventry and we look forward to sharing in the city’s success.”
