Field Fisher Waterhouse (FFW) is set to boost its office space by more than a fifth when it moves into new offices at Ibex House in the City next year.
The firm has taken a total of 20,000sq ft in the new building, which is enough to house more than 100 employees. FFW has taken 15,000sq ft now and committed itself to a further 5,000sq ft when it completes the move next spring.
The increased space will help FFW fulfil its three-year growth target, by 2008.
This year FFW's turnover was up by 13 per cent to £67.7m, which keeps it on course to hit next year's target of £75m.
Currently the firm has a single office of 89,000sq ft at 35 Vine Street, which holds a total of 582 staff.
