Shoosmiths will move into its new c.5000sq ft of leased office space at The Garment Factory on Montrose Street in the heart of Glasgow’s innovation district next Monday.

The move sees 13 legal advisors and partners now based in Glasgow. A significant development, the opening of the Glasgow office to complement the firm’s long-established successful operation in Edinburgh.

Barry McKeown said: “I am very pleased to see our expanding team of talented lawyers and support staff moving into our new Glasgow premises at The Garment Factory. Though we’ve worked from a small hub on West Regent Street since 2019, this lease of significant attractive office space in the heart of Glasgow marks a step-change in our operation and ambitions in the West of Scotland”.

“This includes a concerted drive to further add to our legal headcount to service key sectors, working with our Edinburgh teams and UK-wide colleagues to deliver superb legal and commercial advice”.

Janette Speed, newly appointed head of Scotland for Shoosmiths, added: “Shoosmiths has a terrific blue-chip client base in Scotland. It’s testament to the sustained hard work of our talented and growing legal team that we also have a very robust pipeline of new business in Glasgow. A proud city that will soon host COP26, I believe it offers very exciting opportunities for progressive businesses like Shoosmiths in the months and years ahead.”
