Leading independent law firm Burness Paull is to relocate its Aberdeen team to a new prime office in the prestigious Marischal Square development as the business invests in enhanced facilities for the benefit of staff and clients.
Burness Paull, which works with leading organisations across the UK and internationally, will be in 2MSQ in the grade A building which is helping to regenerate the east end of the city centre.
The firm, which employs 650 people across Scotland and more than 100 in Aberdeen, joins other well-known businesses at the office, hotel, and restaurant complex including CBRE, Royal Bank of Scotland, Chevron UK, KPMG, EY, Tenaris, Aberdeen Journals, NSTA, NESPF, Maggie’s Grill, Mackie’s, All Bar One, Costa, Tony Macaroni, Marriott International, and the much-anticipated street food market Resident X.
Aberdeen City Council Finance and Resources Convener Councillor Alex McLellan said: “It is fantastic that Burness Paull is relocating its Aberdeen office to Marischal Square. They will join many other prestigious companies based at the development which provides high quality office space with strong environmental credentials as well as fantastic bars and restaurants and is helping to regenerate the east end of the city centre.”
Burness Paull’s investment in the space at Marischal Square follows the move to a new Glasgow office and refurbishment of its Edinburgh office which the firm undertook last year. Tamar Tammes, managing partner at Burness Paull, said: “This is an exciting move for Burness Paull and an opportunity to bring our Aberdeen-based team together in a modern, flexible environment suited to the hybrid working era.
The firm’s ambitious growth strategy is focused on attracting and retaining the right talent to strengthen and diversify key divisions, adding value in areas most impacted by the evolving economic and regulatory landscape and where we are seeing increasing demand for our advice.
Key to this is ensuring we offer high-quality facilities across all our locations, where our people can work creatively and collaborate to deliver the best possible outcomes for our clients.”
The state-of-the-art Marischal Square comprises 122,000 sq ft over six floors and has the best BREEAM and EPC ratings of any office building in Aberdeen with sustainability features and technology embedded throughout.
