AS part of Muckle LLP’s recent move to their new offices at Time Central, Gallowgate, Newcastle, the commercial law firm hosted a series of launch parties to celebrate.
The firm held three celebration dinners, bringing former Dragons’ Den panellist and YO! Sushi founder Simon Woodroffe, former barrister and broadcaster Clive Anderson and PR guru Alastair Campbell to their new offices to speak to a total of 180 guests from prominent North East businesses.
The dinners marked an important phase in the continued growth of the firm. Managing partner Stephen McNicol said: “We are absolutely delighted to have successfully completed the move and to have celebrated the beginning of a new era for the firm with so many of our friends.”
The three dinners provided an opportunity for the firm to say thank you to clients for their ongoing support and gave them the opportunity to see the firm’s new facilities.
These include three floors of office accommodation, a rooftop terrace, business lounge, bespoke client meeting rooms and an 80-person seminar space where the dinners were held.
Senior partner Hugh Welch said: “Our culture and brand have changed significantly and with that change has come a period of growth which has attracted talented people and excellent clients. These events gave us a fantastic opportunity to thank our clients for their ongoing support and mark the next phase of the firm’s development.”
Stephen McNicol said: “The move gives us a unique opportunity to review and redefine the way we work, bringing real benefit to our people, to our clients and to our business for many years to come.”
One of the guests, Mike Mullaney, director and head of large corporate, LloydsTSB Corporate Markets, said: “What a great event. The whole evening was thoroughly enjoyable and it was great to see the pride that the team showed about their new surroundings.”
Commenting on the new building, Tom Hedley, client services director at Robson Brown, said: “With the possible exception of Virgin, I can’t think of a better example of a corporate ID being embedded so well into the DNA of a company, as has been achieved by Muckle. Everyone involved deserves great credit for the end result; truly inspiring.”
