Eddisons and Begbies Traynor relocate Leeds offices to Wellington Place

Date Published: 23/06/2023

Property group Eddisons and leading independent insolvency practitioner Begbies Traynor, have relocated their Leeds offices to Wellington Place. The two firms, part of Begbies Traynor Group plc, have taken the 7,100 sq ft second floor of 10 Wellington Place, which will be home to Eddisons’ head office and the Leeds office of the national insolvency specialist.

The two businesses employ in excess of 1,200 people nationally with around 100 staff alone working out of the Leeds office.

Eddisons managing partner Anthony Spencer said: “This is an exciting move to state-of-the-art offices for both Eddisons and Begbies Traynor and represents our joint commitment to Yorkshire, where Eddisons was first founded in 1851, and an investment in our people, as well as strengthening the relationship between the two firms.”

He added: “It’s a reflection of our change in priorities since Covid, and an emphasis on the wellbeing of our team, that we are actually taking less overall space than we had previously but it is more people-focused.”

Julian Pitts, regional managing partner for Begbies Traynor in Yorkshire, said: “This is a great move for both firms and 10 Wellington Place will be an inspiring city centre environment both for our own staff and our clients.

“While we have reduced the need for storage space, our new offices will have much improved staff welfare facilities, including a larger kitchen and more breakout spaces, embracing more modern ways of working and making this a welcoming and productive environment for our team.

“We believe these new offices located in this impressive new development, are a reflection of the ambition of the group and an important milestone, supporting our strategic growth plans and enabling us to better serve our clients.”
