Vincents Celebrate New Office Move
Former Guild Mayors Residence restored to previous Glory.
Vincents Solicitors celebrated the opening of their new head office at Guild Chambers, 4 Winckley Square on Thursday with an evening reception hosted by the partners.
The building has a rich history tied to the Guild with the property originally being built for Nicholas Grimshaw who himself was a lawyer. He was 5 times mayor of Preston and twice bestowed the honour of Guild Mayor, it was therefore appropriate that the office was officially declared open by The Guild Mayor Cllr Carl Crompton.
The 100 guests included clients, local businesses, barristers and members if the judiciary and were treated to a warm invitation to view the buildings recent extensive renovation work whilst enjoying champagne and canapés.
The property has been sympathetically restored to enhance its wonderful original architectural features whilst having a modern, relaxed and welcoming style to reflect Vincents own ethos of “being proud of our heritage but firmly focused on our future.”
The event also combined the celebration with a fundraising raffle in aid of St Catherine’s Hospice with prizes being generously donated by local businesses.
Phillip Gilmore, Managing Partner commented “This evening has been a great success, I hope that our guests here this evening can see that the extensive renovations and care we have taken in the restoration of this beautiful building in the heart of Preston’s professional quarter demonstrates our commitment to serving the local people and business community within Preston.”
The building itself was dressed with a huge bow for the event which attracted quite a bit of attention from passers by. Olivia Robinson, Partner at Vincents commented “We are very proud of our new home and wanted to bring the fact that the building has been brought to life again to everyone’s attention. I think the huge red bow has certainly done that!”
