King Sturge has officially opened its new office in Nottingham, the firm’s 16th in the UK. The new office will be led by Helen Longstaffe, who rejoined King Sturge last year after four years away in order to help lead the firm’s dedicated East Midlands Focus Group.
The group was formed to target opportunities within the growing Derby, Leicester and Nottingham marketplace, and its success was one of the main factors in King Sturge’s decision to open an office in Nottingham.
King Sturge is also acting for the East Midlands Development Agency and English Partnerships in creating an East Midlands property investment fund.
Commenting on the area’s future, Longstaffe said: “All three cities are not only currently heavily involved in major regeneration projects but have also been named as possible relocation bases for some of the government departments which will be moved out of London to the UK regions. It is an exciting and challenging time for the East Midlands and we are delighted to be able to now have the opportunity to help shape its future.”
The new office will be located at 14 Park Row, NG1. King Sturge has taken the office space from the accountant, Cooper Parry.
