Historic Friar Gate Office is Refurbished and Open for Business

July 07, 2017

In the summer of last year, our firm announced its purchase of the Grade II* listed building of 49 Friar Gate with a plan to refurbish it to help accommodate our growth in staff.

Having been hard at work over the past nine months, we’re delighted to announce that the building is now ready for occupation. To help mark the occasion, Member of Parliament for Derby North, Chris Williamson came down for the official opening.

Chris commented: “It was great to be invited to the opening of Swindell and Pearson's office in Derby. I found it both enjoyable and enlightening to hear about the work that they do and the highly specialised nature of intellectual property law.

It is a pleasure to see them thrive in Derby and I am glad that they have decided to continue the services that they provide to clients both domestically and abroad through improving and expanding their office space".

Reflecting on the successful opening, IP Director Robert Sales said: “The additional office space is most welcome as it gives us room for future hires to help accommodate our growth plans. We’re working with a growing number of local businesses as well as individual inventors and brand owners who are increasingly recognising the importance and benefits of securing their valuable intellectual property rights”.
