Pinsent Masons to join Brodies in Edinburgh development
International law firm Pinsent Masons has signed a lease for moving its Edinburgh office to the new development under construction at Capital Square.
The firm is taking 25,000 square feet at the Capital Square development in Morrison Street, close to the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, which is scheduled for completion in May 2020.
Earlier this month Brodies announced that it will take the top three floors of the office complex (click here for report), a speculative investment by BAM Properties in the city's Exchange business district.
Ewan Alexander, partner and head of Pinsent Masons’ Edinburgh office, commented: “Scotland is a critical market for us and we required premises that reflect our ongoing commitment to the capital and market-leading position.
“There has been a dearth of suitable grade A office accommodation in Edinburgh, so we are delighted to have agreed a lease for premises at the heart of the city’s business district.
“As a major provider of legal services to Scottish industry and commerce, and with a widespread global network which supports those businesses trading internationally, it is important that our staff are located in a prime position.”
