Lupton Fawcett signs lease on prestigious Leeds city centre office

2 The Embankment

Yorkshire law firm Lupton Fawcett LLP has signed the lease on 12,000 square feet of new office accommodation in the popular southern professional quarter of Leeds city centre.

The company will occupy the entire first floor of the prestigious 2 The Embankment building on Sovereign Street.

Lupton Fawcett’s Leeds-based employees will move from its current base in Yorkshire House, East Parade, to the newly refurbished Embankment property in late spring.

Managing partner James Richardson said: “This is the latest in a series of investments to support the next phase of our growth.

“The working habits of many of our people have changed in recent years. Our new office reflects this shift and will offer an improved environment for our people, enhancing our ability to work together to deliver the best outcomes for our clients.

“Its location in the heart of the business centre of Leeds means we’re more accessible to clients than ever and we look forward to welcoming them to our new home soon.”

The building is next to the River Aire and offers facilities including electric car charging points and a cycle hub.

Elizabeth Ridler, partner with global property consultancy Knight Frank in Leeds, commented: “We were delighted to help Lupton Fawcett in their search for new premises in Leeds. The recently refurbished 2 Embankment is now one of the most attractive Grade A office buildings in the city, so we believe they have chosen well.

“This deal underpins the high quality of 2 Embankment and its excellent location in Sovereign Street overlooking the River Aire within the popular southern professional quarter of the city. It is only a few minutes’ walk from the southern entrance to Leeds Station and from Leeds’ retail core.”

Lupton Fawcett’s 142-strong team offers a full range of legal services to commercial and private clients and also has offices in Sheffield and York.

It was named as one of The Times Best Law Firms 2022. It is also listed among the Chambers UK 2022 guide to the top-ranked law firms for its work in the employment, intellectual property, corporate and family law sectors.
