Bosses at Hudgell Solicitors said its move into new headquarters on a £15m commercial development in Hull’s Fruit Market demonstrates both its long-term commitment to the city.
The medical negligence and personal injury specialist law firm, which is marking 20 years in business this year, moved into the three-story accommodation on the @TheDock development shortly before the New Year, with the finishing external touches and signage now complete.
The 10,500 sq ft offices, which overlook the city’s new amphitheatre created within the historic former Central Dry Dock and The Deep tourist attraction, were bought directly from the developer, Hull-based regeneration company Wykeland Group.
Hudgell Solicitors’ new offices form part of the same development as the Centre For Digital Innovation (C4DI) tech hub, which has accelerated the growth of the region’s digital sector as well as acting as a major catalyst for the transformation of the Fruit Market.
Managing director Neil Hudgell said: “As a business with its roots firmly set in Hull, and with a large number of staff who live in the city and have their lives engrained in it, we are very proud to have moved into such an impressive building on a key area of redevelopment.
“By purchasing these impressive premises we have demonstrated our long-term commitment to the city. It reflects our belief that Hull is a great place to do business, and it certainly has been for us for 20 years now. It is a perfect base for us and will help further raise our profile and commitment to the city.”
