The Manchester-based privately owned real estate firm OBI has represented a Bolton law firm as it expanded into the City of London, acquiring nearly 7,500 sq ft of office space.
Keoghs, who are an insurance-focused top 50 law firm, and leading provider of claims-related services moved into their new London office earlier this month, after agreeing to a lease in May.
Alex Hodgson, Chief Financial Officer of Keoghs, said: “This move reflects our commitment to meeting the demand from our clients for our services to be offered from within the City of London.
“We first opened in London in January 2017 and now have a headcount of 46 in the City delivering products and services supporting insurers’ risks in areas including professional indemnity, reinsurance, healthcare, property and regulatory.”
As part of the move, Keogh’s 46 London-based staff were relocated from their managed workspace at Holland House to their new office on the fourth floor of Plantation Place South on Great Tower Street.
Manchester’s OBI, who acted for Keoghs, employs 32 people and provides advice to clients across its multi-discipline services.
Commenting on the Plantation Place South acquisition for Keoghs, OBI Transactions & Asset Management’s Paul Mills said: We were delighted to continue our relationship with Keoghs who we have represented in Manchester, Bolton, Glasgow, Southampton, Coventry and Liverpool.
“Plantation Place South is an impressive workspace building in the heart of the city and reflects the premium service offering that Keoghs provides.”
