Swindell & Pearson to Expand

Given our own historic roots here in Derby, we were pleased to be able to commit to the city and its professional quarter with the purchase of this property.
— Martin Terry, Director

Bondholder Swindell & Pearson is expanding its headquarters by purchasing Number 49 Friar Gate, located in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter. The three storey Grade II* Listed building (built around 1841) provides Swindell & Pearson with the perfect opportunity to continue its expansion plans.
 
Martin Terry, Director, said: “We’re seeing increased demand in our intellectual property services with some impressive growth and new client acquisitions.  It was most fortuitous that 49 Friar Gate, located right next door to our current premises, came on the market just at the right time as we were starting to look for additional office space.
 
“It’s great to have a property with character and quite a lot of history – much like our firm!  We are now undertaking extensive refurbishment of the property, which has seen some unique uses over the years having variously served as premises to: a school of music, a laser skin clinic and a hotel - it even has a basement bar. Though unfortunately our refurbishment plans don’t include keeping the bar!”
