Leading South Coast law firm Lester Aldridge announces a significant milestone as it prepares to relocate its Southampton office to Mountbatten House, in the heart of Grosvenor Square, Southampton’s premier business district, this July.

Working in collaboration with Vibe Business Interiors, LA has designed a bespoke fit-out of its new office space to reflect the needs of both clients and staff in 2024. The new office, bringing all staff together on a single floorplate, boasts an “LA Café” hub, various formal and informal breakout areas, a “Collaboration Corner”, and more. It also uses the latest technology to facilitate greater communication and innovation.

Having served as the cornerstone of Lester Aldridge’s Southampton presence since its acquisition in 2001, the Carlton Crescent office has witnessed remarkable growth. The Southampton office now houses seventy dedicated professionals across key departments, including Real Estate, Corporate and Commercial, Personal Injury, and LA Marine, the firm’s specialist marine and shipping law team. The relocation to Mountbatten House aligns with Lester Aldridge’s commitment to basing itself in Southampton city centre.

Reflecting on the impending move, Partner Tom Alder, who has been instrumental in shaping Lester Aldridge’s Southampton journey, expressed his enthusiasm: “As we celebrate 23 years of success in Southampton, we are delighted to announce the relocation to Mountbatten House.

“Our new, purpose-designed space embodies our ethos of collaboration, empowering our teams to thrive and deliver unparalleled legal expertise to our valued clients.”
