Clarkslegal LLP, the long established full service commercial law firm, is to move its Reading office early next year to Thames Tower, a landmark building directly opposite the newly rebuilt £8million Reading station. Thames Tower offers award winning exceptional offices to modern businesses requiring innovative, high specification, design led office space that supports Clarkslegal’s requirements for innovative, agile and flexible working.
The firm’s wide range of clients from start-ups and SMEs to multinationals to FTSE 250 companies, as well as public sector bodies and individual clients, and its diverse and complex work calls for forward thinking working spaces with the latest technology.
The new 8,500 square feet space on the fifth floor is an ‘office of the future’, with state of the art technology. Its range of modern multi-purpose meeting and work areas, social spaces and generous communal facilities, are set to encourage further collaboration and innovation in the firm.
Thames Tower was recently shortlisted in the ‘Global Best Office Building’ category in the Blueprint awards and won ‘Town Office of The Year’ at the Thames Valley Property Awards 2017.
Commenting on the move is Managing Partner of Clarkslegal, Monica Atwal,
“The way of work is fundamentally changing and all service provision including the legal service market is undergoing rapid transformation. To excel in this landscape, we need to continue to invest in our environment, the latest technology, and efficient systems and practices that encourage collaborative, flexible working with a local, national and international mindset.
The transition to Thames Tower allows us to fulfil our goals of providing exemplary, advanced and novel solutions that delight clients and meet their needs in these changing times.
It also provides an exceptional environment for our connected businesses including FPL (our HR consultancy), FIN (our investment network) and CEIP (the Commonwealth Environmental Investment Platform). Everything we do for our clients, and in our collaborative relationships, is about being efficient, straightforward and helpful to provide solutions and support successful business growth. We believe the environment our people enjoy at work is a huge factor in doing these things well.
This move represents the next chapter of Clarkslegal’s long legacy. We are proud to have been in Reading for over 100 years, serving clients not only in the Thames Valley but also nationally and globally. The move is an investment in our own future and marks our confidence also in the future economic success of Reading as our historic base.”
Clarkslegal is moving into its new office space in March 2018.
