Hewitsons cashes in on Cambridge growth
Law firm Hewitsons has completed a major refurbishment of its Cambridge office, following another year of increased turnover.
The three-floor, 15,500 sq ft building, Shakespeare House in Newmarket Road, has undergone a complete overhaul.
As well as giving a fresh look to the premises, which Hewitsons has occupied for more than 30 years, the refurbishment has created new client meeting rooms and reception facilities. Throughout the work, which began in June last year, the office remained open, with a temporary reception set up.
Managing Partner Colin Jones said: “The past few years have been very exciting for Hewitsons and, in particular, 2017 was a highly successful year.
“We have used successive years of growth and rising income to invest in our infrastructure, such as our Cambridge office, our IT systems and, most importantly, in our people. It was important to us to ensure that we continue to provide the very best for our clients and visitors, in line with our policy of Absolute Client Focus.”
Hewitsons held a ribbon-cutting to mark the official opening of the revamped premises. Staff also attended an office party, together with members of construction firm Stirling Grey and design consultancy practice Workspace, both of which carried out the work.
Recently, the firm also held its annual reception at The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, which more than 350 clients and key contacts attended, representing sectors ranging from charities and education to technology, construction and real estate.
Guests were able to network while experiencing the impressive Codebreakers and Groundbreakers exhibition, which showcased the achievements of two separate groups of British codebreakers active during the Second World War.
