Innovative law firm Berwins has moved the Leeds offices of its digital arm to the state of the art Platform development as it reaffirms commitment to the region’s burgeoning digital economy.
The move comes as the division, which supports businesses on matters from data protection to contract negotiation, enjoys a period of sustained growth.
The Platform offices are part of a new multimillion pound working environment which represents a major strategic development for Leeds. Standing above the city’s railway station, the space is designed to promote a strong business community and enable organisations to connect, cultivate and collaborate.
“There is a very real and growing vibrancy around the Leeds digital community, which is having a positive effect on the economy of both the city and the wider region” said Senior Partner and Head of Digital, Paul Berwin.
“As a firm, we have a long-standing commitment to this dynamic centre both through the businesses we support and the part we play in key events, not least the rapidly growing Leeds Digital Festival.
“Our move to Platform – one of the most exciting, innovative workplaces in our region – is a reflection of our sustained focus on operating at the cutting edge of new and emerging movements.”
The relocation comes during an exciting year for Berwins, who’s IT and technology work has also garnered recognition with a shortlisting for two awards at the upcoming Yorkshire Legal Awards and has inspired the launch of successful trade initiatives in Israel, Estonia and the wider Baltic region.
Combined with ongoing development of Berwins’ wider commercial function, the forward-thinking law firm has entered an exciting phase, based quite literally on a solid platform for growth.
