National legal firm takes Leeds space in "one of the largest office deals in the city"
A UK legal firm has announced that it has completed “one of the largest office deals” in Leeds this year.
Knights, which recently acquired Leeds law firm Shulmans, will be taking 22,000 sq ft of super prime Grade A office space at the Majestic in Leeds.
The company will be joining Channel 4 in the Majestic, which has been comprehensively refurbished by the Rushbond Group.
The deal, which is for a 15 year lease, was brokered by the Leeds office of global property consultancy Knight Frank.
David Beech, CEO of Knights, commented: “Today’s announcement reflects Knights’ ongoing commitment to provide a high-quality and collaborative working environment for colleagues and will support our expansion in the region through recruitment as we continue to scale our presence across the UK.”
Eamon Fox, partner and head of office agency at Knight Frank in Leeds, who advised Knights, commented: “This is a very significant letting for Leeds and a resounding endorsement both of the quality and design of the Majestic building and of the strength of the legal sector in the city.
“Rushbond have transformed this superbly located building into an exciting workplace at the forefront of the Leeds market.
“The lettings announced so far are a resounding endorsement of what has already been achieved here.
“I am confident that this flight to quality will lead to further significant office lettings at Majestic in the near future.
“With Channel 4 and Knights taking a combined total of five floors, there is just 17,000 sq ft still available and interest in that is strong, despite these challenging times.”
