A prominent Belfast-based law firm has “marked a new era” after officially launching its new headquarters in the city’s Linen Quarter.

Tughans has taken the 11th and 12th floor of The Ewart at Bedford Square on Bedford Street.

The move from its previous office in Victoria Street comes during period of growth for the historic firm, which celebrated 125 years in business in 2021.

Designed by Ply Design, and brought forward by fit-our company Somerville, the office has been developed in a way that will promote collaboration. Johnston Houston project managed the move.

MRP built The Ewart, which merges a historic building with a 17-storey extension, and the base has achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating, making it one of Belfast’s most sustainable new buildings.

Patrick Brown, managing partner of Tughans, said: “The move to The Ewart marks a new era for Tughans. Having outgrown our offices in Victoria Street, we sought a new office that was appropriate for the forward thinking and innovative firm that we have become. With impeccable sustainability credentials and enviable views across the city, The Ewart was the perfect choice and will support our ESG targets. We’re excited that we have now moved in and can start to make it our own.”

David Jones, real estate partner at Tughans, added: “With an open plan layout, the new office will help to nurture a collaborative environment and foster new ways of working between teams in the firm. It is very much designed with our staff and our clients in mind to create a welcoming, comfortable yet professional atmosphere. With various private meeting and events spaces along with relaxed common areas, we look forward to welcoming clients to the building.”
