Sweeney Miller makes Sunderland move

The North East law firm has taken possession of a 10,000 sq ft office building at Riverbank Road, relocating from Mowbray Villas in Ashbrooke.

Sweeney Miller Law, which provides legal services to businesses and individuals from bases in Sunderland and Newcastle, said it has enjoyed a period of significant and sustained growth in both staff and clients from across the North East region and nationwide, prompting a move across the Wear into more modern space.

The riverside area is close to various projects creating a regeneration buzz in the city, not least the £450m Crown Works Studios development, now consented.

Originally opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1993, the new premises, Sweeney Miller House, has undergone a refurbishment programme that the firm said will bring it into line with the Newcastle office.

Sweeney Miller House features a reception area, suite of meeting rooms, boardroom and event space, and a spacious staff break-out area as well as ample parking for staff and clients. The building previously housed Homeworthy Furniture and later a claims company. .

Managing partner Surbhi Vedhara said: “While our office in Mowbray Villas has served us well for many years, our continued growth of both team and workload has provided us with an exciting reason to look to the next chapter of Sweeney Miller Law and move to premises that can facilitate our ongoing expansion.

“We’ve always had a base in Sunderland, and the new facilities will allow us to continue providing excellent service to our clients in the area, the region, and further afield. We are excited about the opportunities that Sweeney Miller House presents for us and very much look forward to what the future holds.”

Lofthouse & Partners advised the firm on the selection and acquisition of its new premises.
