Tenant Spotlight: George Street Law Group LLP
We welcomed George Street Law Group LLP to the Textile Building in October. They are a newly formed, full service law firm and they are a great addition to the building.
We asked the partners a few questions now that they’ve settled in to their new space:
You’re the new law firm in Hamilton, and the newest tenant in the Textile Building. Describe your firm in a few sentences.
We are six (soon to be eight) lawyers who got our start either on Bay Street or at a large Hamilton firm, but wanted to break off to practice law together in a modern, sophisticated way that has been missing in Hamilton. Our office is full service and run by an exceptionally talented group of lawyers and support staff.
What’s something that you’re really excited about in Hamilton right now?
The food! The Hamilton restaurant scene has exploded and peppered our downtown with so many cool spots to hit up for lunch, after work drinks, or dinner. The French, Berkeley North, and The Mule are a few of our favourites.
Why was it important for your firm to be downtown, and in a unique office space?
Law offices are frequently slow to evolve and can be stuffy and intimidating. We wanted to create a modern and inviting space in the heart of Hamilton’s downtown to be at the forefront of Hamilton’s changing business landscape. It is exciting to see people light up when they come into our office and to hear them comment on the space. Having Momentum gym and a daycare in the building are also pretty great perks.
We’re happy to have as part of the Textile Building!
