Thompson Solicitors have moved into new city centre offices in Manchester after leasing 12,700 sq ft at Orbit Development’s 55 King Street property. The leading personal injury firm has moved its 117 strong team into the property following a comprehensive fit out.

Ian Bounds, Estates Manager for Thompson Solicitors, has been managing a programme of nationwide relocations for the business.

He commented: “55 King Street is ideal for our requirements as the business has been able to relocate all staff onto a single floor, satisfying a primary relocation objective. Yet we have also managed to deliver a unique workspace that limits the sometimes distracting influence of large, open plan working environments, ensuring staff well being and productivity.”

Thompsons Solicitors’ team of personal injury specialists were previously based in Pearl Assurance House, spread across multiple floors, managing personal injury claims, road and workplace accident claims, medical negligence, industrial disease and asbestos claims.

Commercial property agents Worthington Owen advised Thompson Solicitors, while Orbit Developments were represented by JLL and Edwards & Co.

The remainder of Orbit Developments’ available stock in Manchester city centre has been reduced to just Cobden House and 18-22 Mosley Street, both adjacent to Piccadilly Gardens. Previously occupied by Lloyds Bank, Cobden House is the subject of a full refurbishment that will provide air conditioned workspace across floors of 4,500 sq. ft from Q2 onwards.
