CEL Solicitors takes floor at Liverpool’s Chapel Street

Chloé Vaughan

The law firm is set to move from its current base at the Atlantic Pavilion on the Albert Dock to the 12th floor of Twenty Chapel Street next month.

The 8,000 sq ft space will have room for 90 staff, which is 60 more than its current office. The Chapel Street office will also include an amphitheatre style presentation room and breakout areas.

CEL is set to use this move to further expand its group litigation, data breach, and property litigation services to its clients and grow its property disrepair team.

Director Jessica Hampson said: “This is an incredibly exciting time as we look to move into our new home and press on with our plans for expansion. At the heart of our ethos is putting people before profits; it underpins everything we do, from looking after our clients to ensuring our staff are happy at work, and our new office space completely reflects this.

“Since our launch, we’ve truly gone from strength to strength, which is testament to the dedication and talent of our team. The sectors in which we work are constantly evolving and it is more important than ever before to attract, and retain, the best talent, so our culture values and environment need to be on point if we are going to bring in the industry’s finest, and of course, the rising stars.

Ian Murray, director at Canmoor, said: “Twenty Chapel Street is an extremely sought-after location in the city centre, not only because of its enviable location, but its high quality office space that is home to tenants such as LFC, Barclays and EY, to name a few.

“From the outset, CEL Solicitors had a clear vision of where they wanted to take the business and what they needed from the space in which they would do this.”

CBRE acted on behalf of CEL Solicitors and Worthington Owen acted for Canmoor.

This is ideal for Liverpool and it shows we are not a city of bin men and unemployed dockers. This will provide professional jobs for our children and their children. Go Liverpool go!

Great indication of the rising professional services market in Liverpool. Some way to go, but lots of good signs. Well done CEL.

Isn’t this the same building that had bits of cladding dropping off recently. Hardly professional.
