The landmark development features digital studios and office facilities, plus residential, retail and leisure space, as well as being home to the BBC.

Testimonials

City Law Firm

“I have been impressed with the degree of personal service received by Origin Legal. Their approach seems to be to not bother clients unless they have someone suitable or a valid and relevant question to ask, which is appreciated, particularly in the current climate. The consultants are also honest, professional and friendly.”

Private Client

“I have worked with Origin for a couple of years now. I have always appreciated their friendly approach, openness and honesty. I know I will get solid advice that I can trust and that there is no hidden agenda. They really make an effort to connect with their clients and to get to know them. And when you genuinely get on, it is that much easier to work together.”

Flint Bishop

“Flint Bishop have used Origin Legal for a number of years and in particular retained them to deal with several high profile Partner appointments. We have always been delighted with the service that we receive and in particular the consultant’s practical approach coupled with sound commercial advice.
