Patent and trade mark attorneys Serjeants has announced the next phase of its expansion with the opening of its new Derby office, after support from the teams at Marketing Derby and Bondholder Connect Derby.

Serjeants has identified Derby as the ideal location for its next strategic move and was the first tenant to sign a contract for office space at Bondholder Connect Derby's iHub building on Infinity Park.

Darran Thacker, Partner at Serjeants, said: "Derby has long been the high-tech manufacturing capital of the East Midlands. We work closely with engineering businesses and the opening of the iHub, which is dedicated to supporting supply chain businesses for leading OEMs, provided us with the ideal opportunity to find a location close to the businesses we enjoy working with."

Jimmy Drew, Inward Investment Executive at Marketing Derby, said: "Having worked closely with Serjeants it was clear from the outset that the iHub was a great location for them, based on their requirements, and we'd like to wish them every success in their new home."

The Derby office will be led by partners Darran Thacker and Dean Lacey.
