Law firm prepares move into new Lincoln offices

£400k investment: A Lincoln law firm is almost ready to move into its new city centre offices next week, once final touches are ready.

A Lincoln law firm is almost ready to move into its new offices next week, once final touches are ready.

Bridge McFarland will move into the new offices in Sibthorpe House from the corner of Tentercroft Street and High Street.

As previously reported, the firm had offices in the building beforehand, but decided to expand by taking over the former Sony Centre unit as well as the top floor of the complex.

They have spent the last three months converting the unit into office space, which includes a new reception and meetings rooms. The investment is worth more than £400,000.

There’s also a new bike shelter to the rear of the building and a shower room to help encourage staff to cycle to work.

The 680sq metres office will house five of the firm’s 21 partners.

Their current office has been sold to Lincolnshire County Council, who will demolish the Tentercroft side of the building to start work on the East-West Link Road scheme.

The firm will move into the new premises on July 21.

The new offices are part of a successful year for the firm, who have promoted two new partners, renewed a big sponsorship deal with Lincoln City FC and extended its offices in Hull.

Managing Partner Richard Parnell said: “It’s been a really exciting and successful year for the firm and this move reinforces our commitment to the city centre at a time when many people are moving into out-of-town offices.

“It’s really important for us to grow our visual presence in the High Street to reflect our growing business and provide the best facilities for our staff and clients.”
