Regional law firm Mogers Drewett is to relocate its Bath office to be closer to the city’s emerging Quays business quarter in a move that will also usher in an open-plan working environment for staff.

Bath’s North and South Quays development will create a new enterprise area for the city with 300,000 sq ft of grade A office space as well as a business hotel and apartments.

Mogers Drewett’s relocation from its historic Queen Square base to the more modern St James House in The Square off Lower Bristol Road will, it says, place it at the heart of the new development, which is being marketed as a centre for financial services businesses as well as tech and creative firms.

The new office, which opens for business on November 4, will house 42 staff in what was until recently the Bath office of property firm Carter Jonas's commercial team.

While it is around the same size as the current Queen Square office, it will enable greater collaboration between teams in modern working conditions – staff in Queen Square are spread across four floors and around 20 rooms.

The firm, which also has offices in Wells sand Sherborne, said the move would also enable it to continue to innovate – it recently became one of the first law firms introduce artificial intelligence across its conveyancing process.

Partner and head of family law Rebecca Silcock said: “Mogers Drewett has a rich history in Bath, and the South West, having provided legal services in the region for over 150 years.

“Our move near to the vibrant new enterprise quarter, Bath Quays, recognises our continued commitment to the region and its people, and enhances our ability to provide forward-thinking legal expertise at a local level.”

Partner and head of department for employment & HR Sean McDonough said the relocation was a crucial step in the firm’s continued commitment to delivering the types of services its clients wanted. 

“We are committed to Bath and the new office is key to our plans for growth and the development and refinement of our full range of services. We look forward to welcoming existing and new clients and referrers alike.”

Mogers Drewett was formed in 2014 from the merger of Mogers and Dyne Drewett. It employs 92 people across its three offices providing a full range of legal services for businesses and individuals.
