Research shows the growth of Leeds’ legal sector to have outpaced London, Manchester and Birmingham in recent years, recalling the city’s glory days in the pre-financial crisis era. For one of Leeds’ biggest firms, Walker Morris, the continued expansion of the local market has coincided with the implementation of a strategy that has seen it move almost entirely away from commoditised areas such as personal injury towards high-level corporate and commercial work.
A sleek office, which Walker Morris moved into in the summer of 2019, ties in with this strategy. The “delightful” building, found at the heart of Leeds’ business district and “probably the best” in the city, includes “beautiful” communal spaces, swish meeting pods, an in-house Ts&Cs café, and a scenic outside courtyard area — making it a huge improvement on the firm’s “slightly tired” former gaffe.
