Freeths has reviewed its office portfolio after hailing the move to agile working “a great success.”
The review has led the firm to take on new premises whilst closing others after “taking into account the efficiency of agile working, the preferences of employees and clients, as well as accommodating the firm’s progressive and ongoing growth.”
Freeths said: “The review has concluded that, while remote working is likely to remain a core element in the future, the ability for clients and staff alike to physically come together and collaborate, as well as have meeting space, will always remain important to the Freeths offering.”
Freeths has therefore moved into a new look Derby office, which is specifically designed to accommodate an agile working environment. It has also taken new premises in Oxford, which it will be moving into in the summer after completing an extensive fit out, while its Stoke team will now be fully agile.
National Managing Partner, Karl Jansen said: “The pandemic has proven we can still offer excellent and immediate service, while working remotely, and our lawyers are enjoying the benefits of a more flexible working environment.
“Moving to a more modern and progressive office platform will ensure benefits for both clients and our people, which is why we feel it is important to move forward and continue to embrace all the benefits which technology offers.”
