Shoosmiths opens new Edinburgh office
Law firm Shoosmiths has officially opened its new office in Edinburgh, part of the £350 million mixed-use development at 1 Haymarket Square, with a jazz and cocktail reception attended by over 150 staff and guests.
The Edinburgh-based office represents the first occupancy in Haymarket Square, with Shoosmiths signing a 15-year lease for a 16,383 sq ft second-floor office space from property developer Qmile Group.
Janette Speed, real estate partner and head of Scotland for Shoosmiths, said: “I am very proud to welcome our colleagues and guests to Shoosmiths’ new, cutting-edge office space in Scotland’s capital city.
“Close to key transportation links, our office is designed specifically to meet the needs of the hybrid working environment and is ideal for collaborative working and socialisation.
“Together with our colleagues in Glasgow and throughout the UK, we will use this innovative space, that conforms to high environmental standards, to continue to provide first class specialist legal expertise to our local, national and international client base.”
Shoosmiths opening of its new Edinburgh office space comes 18 months after colleagues in Glasgow moved into their new c.5,000 sq ft of leased office space at The Garment Factory on Montrose Street.
