Small acorns and big changes
This month we are celebrating 3 years since the firm first set up business on 12 April 2011. No clients, no office, no files. Just a laptop and a small desk. From the outset, work was carried out from Fiona's office at her home, and meetings were held at Regus House, Cambourne Business Park, Cambridge.
Regus offers excellent facilities to small businesses, in our case using their virtual office support. We've been really pleased to use their service, it's worked very well for us and we will continue to do so.
With Christina joining the firm as an Associate in March 2014 and in line with both us of qualifying as Resolution Family Mediators, we've been thinking a lot about how our clients feel when they come to see us, how it must feel to visit a lawyer's office for the first time, and how we would want that experience to feel if we were in their shoes. We identified that clients should be as comfortable as possible - in short they need to feel 'at home' with us from the outset. With that in mind, we started thinking about setting up our own dedicated client suite as well as finding a permanent home for the firm. Before long we found 8 Wellington Court in the centre of Cambridge. Very soon, this will be our new home, continuing also to see clients at Regus if that suits them better.
We are excited that the success of the firm in 3 years has given us the opportunity to grow in this way and we look forward to welcoming clients at 8 Wellington Court and at Regus House.
Fiona and Christina
