JM Finn is pleased to announce that it has exchanged an agreement for a new London office in Copthall Avenue, EC2. The firm has taken the opportunity to create a working environment that will better reflect the requirements of a post-pandemic world and accommodate future growth.

Hugo Bedford, CEO of JM Finn commented: “I am delighted to announce that we have agreed to move our head office to Copthall Avenue.  We have been in our current home for 13 years, during which time the firm has changed considerably, not least due to the change of working patterns brought on by Covid-19.

“What excites me most about the new office is that all our staff will be working on one floor, as opposed to being across five floors as we are now. As a people business, I firmly believe that without personal interaction we lose the innovation, idea sharing and camaraderie that makes up the fabric of a firm like ours. My aim is to find an approach that blends the benefits of the office with a more agile approach to remote working and the new office will help us achieve this.

“With the lease on Coleman Street coming to an end shortly, we had to make a decision about what would work for us in the future today. This has clearly been difficult given the current situation but we have found an office that represents a significant improvement in the flexibility of the space with more contemporary amenities, all within a short walk of our current office and attractive from a commercial perspective,”

JM Finn will take the whole of the 5th floor and part of the 6th floor, the latter being for the exclusive use for client meetings, which also incorporates a wraparound roof terrace that can be used for client events. This sees the firm take a reduction in floor space of about 10%, which accommodates the firm’s ambitious growth plans whilst offering a more flexible approach to working.

The company will start to move all 250 staff based in London into their new home in Q4 2021, having taken possession in May 2021.
