Solicitors firm Wilson Nesbitt has made 2019 one of its busiest years with the relocation of its Belfast office from Joy Street to Alfred Street just as it was awarded two gongs at an industry event.

The move represents a significant investment in the future of the business, says partner Gary Adair: "Our new Belfast office has been designed with clients in mind. It has grown substantially in recent years due to our expertise in real estate and construction and procurement litigation. We needed facilities which allow for further growth and provide the facilities clients expect from a top law firm."

The relocation of the Belfast office comes less than a year after the completion of an extensive refurbishment and extension project at the firm's Bangor office.

"We have invested heavily in our infrastructure over the last number of years," added partner Lenore Rice.

"The investment in our office space complements our ongoing investment in our IT infrastructure. The two go hand in hand. However, the most pleasing aspect of the recent growth has been seeing the appointment of two new partners, five newly qualified solicitors and six new trainee solicitors. The infrastructure may drive us forward, but it is our team's legal skills, market knowledge and client focus that makes growth possible."

Wilson Nesbitt Solicitors appointed two new associate positions recently, as well as five newly qualified solicitors and six trainee solicitors.

Real estate development partner Drew Nesbitt has recently joined the firm after relocating back to the province from England.

He said: "It is an exciting time to be joining Wilson Nesbitt. The new Belfast office offers the facilities clients expect and will give us the opportunity to host seminars and other events to help our clients grow.

"The number of large-scale regeneration projects makes it an exciting time to be relocating back to Belfast."

Wilson Nesbitt has offices in Bangor and Belfast, where it has seven partners and employs 80 solicitors, professionals and support staff.

It focuses on the commercial real estate, private wealth and alternative legal services markets. It counts some of the largest banks and developers in Northern Ireland as its clients.

The company won two awards at the Estas gala in London recently. One of the biggest events in the UK conveyancing sector, Wilson Nesbitt received two gold awards in the Northern Ireland and County Antrim categories.
