MORTON Fraser MacRoberts will be making a key firm move to its new premises at Haymarket Square in Edinburgh. The firm is setting out to provide the best possible working experience to staff, with the open-plan office space being purposefully designed to facilitate an environment of meaningful collaboration and in-person interaction between people and teams across the business.

The Grade A office space is designed by world-renowned architects Foster + Partners, and the new office will feature state-of-the-art facilities that support agile working and collaboration between the firm’s people and clients.

With an EPC rating of A and a BREEAM certification of ‘Very Good’, sustainability has been maximised in all aspects of the design in keeping with the firm’s commitment to environmental excellence, which is supported by its ISO 14001 certification for Environmental Management.

Neil Kennedy, COO of Morton Fraser MacRoberts, said: “This move will mark a significant milestone for Morton Fraser MacRoberts’ journey and will further support the effective integration of our two legacy businesses into a single combined firm. The new office space has been designed with a strong focus on agility, flexibility and choice for our people, which we believe are critical to a modern, progressive and people-centred law firm, whilst also enforcing first-class legal services to clients across Scotland, the rest of the UK and internationally.”

“We are committed to optimising our office footprint, which includes the consolidation of our teams at our current offices at Quartermile in Edinburgh and Capella in Glasgow. It is an exciting time for the business, and the Haymarket location will be ideal for further integrating and connecting our teams in Edinburgh and Glasgow.”

The firm’s new office will be located on the fifth floor of 1 Haymarket Square, set within the impressive £350m mixed-use development in the heart of Edinburgh’s West End.
