The vision of a modern, forward-thinking law firm
In 2016 Wedlake Bell had outgrown their offices at Bedford Row. With a vision to modernise the firm, they wanted to offer their employees new ways of working in an open plan and collaborative environment. This simply was not possible at Bedford Row, so the management team decided to move to a new slick City address in Queen Victoria Street.
"Bedford Row was very traditional, but this office is the complete opposite – very modern and open-plan and will be able to accommodate future growth." said David Hymers, Head of IT at Wedlake Bell.
This was an ideal opportunity to review the firm’s IT strategy and evaluate the existing network infrastructure and services to make sure they could support a modern, forward-thinking and agile law firm. As a result of this evaluation Wedlake Bell decided to re-design their IT architecture which would be integral to the new office design plans.
