Specialist insurance provider AmTrust Europe Legal, part of the New York-based AmTrust Financial Group, has announced its relocation from Grange House on John Dalton Street in Manchester city centre to 11 St James Square.
AmTrust has signed a five year lease for the whole 3,329 sq ft first floor with WH Ireland for an undisclosed rent.
David Thwaites, head of office agency at Lambert Smith Hampton, who acted on behalf of the landlord, said: "Although still a challenging occupational market, those landlords which offer flexible solutions both in terms of leasing policy and through the quality of accommodation that can be provided will still prosper.
"High quality buildings in central locations such as 11 St James Square will always be in demand and we therefore expect to receive a high level of interest for the remaining floor which once let will eliminate any voids at the building."
Alan Kershaw, WH Ireland's finance and operations director, added: "We are currently undertaking the final phase of refurbishment to the second floor which should be completed later this month."
LSH is now marketing the remaining space on the second floor at 11 St James Square, totalling 4,806 sq ft.
Alex Russell, from WHR, acted for AmTrust in the deal.
