Taylor Wessing Commits to Edward Pavilion

February 21, 2020

After an extensive search for more than 18 months, international law firm Taylor Wessing have decided to make Edward Pavilion their permanent home in the City.

Taylor Wessing, which has its headquarters in London and operates in more than 30 countries across the world, opened its first base in Liverpool in November 2018.  Having launched in Liverpool with a small risk team focused on business acceptance matters, Taylor Wessing now has 17 lawyers and paralegals, and over 60 business service professionals in the city.

Taylor Wessing partner and head of the firm’s Liverpool office, Saleem Fazal, said: “It’s been a highly successful year for the firm as a whole with fantastic achievements in terms of our strategy, the modernisation of our work practices, and our profitability.

“The stunning location of our new Liverpool home is the icing on the cake, and we are thrilled to be able to commit our future to this vibrant, enterprising city. Our team in Liverpool can’t wait to move into the stunning Edward Pavilion refurbishment, and we believe the new office will be a huge asset for us in attracting the very best legal and professional services talent in the North West.”

Edward Pavilion was comprehensively modernised by Castleforge in 2019 and is also home to Clockwise – a contemporary serviced/co-working centre.
