Law firm Thomson Snell & Passmore as opened its new head office.
The law firm has moved into Heathervale House in Tunbridge Wells.
The 28,000 sq ft, newly refurbished, open plan space spans five floors and confirms the firm’s commitment to the town, where it has been since 1910.
It is the town's fourth biggest employer.
The premises will act as a hub for all legal services provided by fee-earners based in Tunbridge Wells, in conjunction with the firm’s other office in the Thames Gateway.
The move follows an announcement from the firm earlier in the year reporting five successive years of financial growth, with fee revenues totalling £22 million in the financial year ending June 5, 2019 – a 5.9% increase from the previous year.
James Partridge, senior partner, said: "As we continue to grow our legal offering to clients and increase in size, we remain committed to building on our heritage by investing in our people and the local area.
“Since the firm started in 1570, we have had a strong presence in the south east and Heathervale House will be a home for the future generations of Thomson Snell & Passmore."
