Law firm Berwins has relocated the Leeds offices of its digital arm to the new 13-storey Platform building in the city centre.

The move comes as the division, which supports businesses on matters from data protection to contract negotiation, enjoys a period of sustained growth and as the law firm “reaffirms its commitment to the region’s bourgeoning digital economy”.

The Platform building will officially launch in November 2017 and provide space for more than 1,000 people.

According to developer Bruntwood, the scheme will enable entrepreneurs, tech start-ups and second stage businesses to thrive in a link-minded community, to collaborate and generate new ideas and grow within the building.

“There is a very real and growing vibrancy around the Leeds digital community, which is having a positive effect on the economy of both the city and the wider region,” Berwins senior partner and head of digital Paul Berwin said.

“As a firm, we have a long-standing commitment to this dynamic centre both through the businesses we support and the part we play in key events, not least the rapidly growing Leeds Digital Festival.

“Our move to Platform – one of the most exciting, innovative workplaces in our region – is a reflection of our sustained focus on operating at the cutting edge of new and emerging movements.”

Berwins also operates from offices in Harrogate.
