Growth prompts Sparkes office move
Rapid expansion in Sparke Helmore's national team has driven the firm’s decision to change its Sydney office.
According to figures supplied by Sparkes, the national team grew by 7 per cent in 2014 to a total of 66 partners and 277 other lawyers.
National managing partner Jesse Webb (pictured) said the firm had a “clear strategic plan” to continue expanding.
“In Sydney, this is particularly true in areas of strong client demand including insurance, corporate, banking and finance, ITC, IP, construction, workplace and safety,” Mr Webb said.
He said the firm's plans include the move to the new offices, located over four floors of the MLC building.
“While this move will accommodate future growth, it gives us the opportunity to design practical, user-friendly client spaces and a contemporary workspace that supports our work practises.”
Mr Webb suggested the new facility would be a “catalyst for improving everything from teamwork to our carbon footprint.”
“We’re excited about the impetus our move gives us to create an environment that is different and better, and where our clients and our staff can transact business efficiently as well as enjoyably,” he said.
