Law firm conveys confidence in city with double size expansion move

wantspacegotspace.co.uk - Law firm conveys confidence in city with double size expansion moveA South Wales law firm has demonstrated its confidence in Newport by expanding its office space in the city centre.

Roger James Clements and Partners, established in Newport since 1973, is doubling the size of its city centre offices after buying the vacant property next to its existing premises in Bridge Street.

The firm, which celebrates forty years in business this year and also has a premises at Caerau Road in the city, is due to open its new larger office after a complete refurbishment and are brand.

Partner Rhydian James said:  “The opportunity to expand next door seemed too good an opportunity to be missed when the previous occupants Santander vacated the premises. We are looking to boost parts of our business with the expansion in particular the conveyancing side of the practice.

“We occupy a prime position in the heart of the commercial district of the city of Newport surrounded by estate agents including Haart which fairly recently opened its offices opposite our premises, so it seemed ideal to expand into the space that became available.”

Rhydian said they had plans to expand the new property to the rear with a double storey extension.
“We’re hopeful that our location will also see us benefiting from the construction of the new Admiral six storey 80,000 sq ft office building on the Cambrian Centre where eventually some 1,200 staff will work and which is due to be completed in 2014.”

Roger James Clements and Partners bought the vacant building 72 Bridge Street freehold for £250,000. The practice expects to plough another £40-50,000 into refurbishment and also its rebrand.

David Jones, of selling agent Newport-based Hutchings & Thomas,  said: “The legal firm is already very well positioned in the city so it seemed a natural progression for them to expand into the available unit alongside their existing premises.

“There is no doubt that the commercial property market remains tough but with developments such as Admiral at Cambrian Centre starting and coming on stream and Roger James Clements and partners also showing confidence in the city by their expansion, things may well be looking up for Newport after an extended period of time in the doldrums.”
