North West firm Brabners Chaffe Street has combined its two offices in Liverpool by moving into larger premises in the city. The firm's 220-strong Liverpool staff has moved to Horton House in the Exchange Flags complex in the city centre. Brabners managing partner Michael Brabner said: "It's always been the plan to move into one office. The leases on both of the old buildings had expired and this was a good opportunity to move on." Brabner added that moving into the 41,000sq ft building will enable the Liverpool team to work closely and create a more cohesive unit. The firm has seen significant growth across all three of its Norh West offices in Liverpool and Manchester. Staff numbers have increased from 319 to 360 in the past year.
