‘Black Country Hub’ move for Thursfields in Halesowen as income more than quadruples

Thursfields Solicitors has revealed plans to move into a modern property to be known as the ‘Black Country Hub’ after quadrupling income at its Halesowen office since 2014.

The leading Midlands law firm will relocate from Hyefield House on the Hagley Road to Neville House in Steelpark Road on 7 May to accommodate its growing team and to become a coordination centre for its other offices in the area.

The move comes as turnover at the Halesowen office has grown by well over 300% between the 2013/14 and 2017/8 tax years, with further growth expected this year.

In that time, the team has increased to over 30, with the most recent starter being Philip Chapman who joined Thursfields as a corporate lawyer from Wall James Chappell at the beginning of February.

Jane Rudge, director of Thursfields’ Corporate & Commercial department and heading the company’s Black Country operations, said: “We’re really looking forward to moving into our new, modern offices in Halesowen as they will give us the ability to continue what has been phenomenal growth in the last five years.

“We’ve enjoyed our time in Hyefield House but were keen to move into the smart, recently refurbished premises offered by Neville House which will allow us to focus on our growth to become the Black Country Hub, delivering high quality legal services across the region.”

Mrs Rudge explained that Thursfields’ move was driven by the need to have a modern, impressive base “to match our future requirements”.

She added: “We are now busy having the new 4,833 sq ft offices at Neville House fitted out to cope with our planned growth.

“We plan to continue expanding, reaching out to customers across the Black Country to provide a big firm service from a local solicitor.”

The Halesowen expansion into new offices comes as Thursfields continues to grow its reputation, winning the ‘Family Law Firm of the Year’ award for the Midlands region at the national Family Law Awards in 2018.

Thursfields has leased the Neville House premises from landlords Neville Registrars.
