Managing partner Yavan Brar said “We are an entrepreneurial law firm and we’ve experienced significant year on year growth over recent years, much of which has been through helping entrepreneurs. We want to continue to help others, using our experience growing our own business and our experience in helping grow businesses over the years.”

Relationship Lawyers
At Herrington Carmichael we understand that people and relationships sit central to our plans of becoming the best law firm in our region. People often think of lawyers ‘sitting behind a desk’ working through huge amounts of paperwork, however our growth over the last few years has been because we have kept a busy calendar of events and opportunities to meet our clients, and members of the communities in which we work.

Need somewhere to work?
The HC Workspace Hub is a free office space where entrepreneurs and startups can come and work, while meeting like-minded individuals in a supportive environment, with access to the expertise and knowledge their businesses need to achieve success.

The launch proved to garner much interest and the first few tenants are signed up and settling in – using the space to support their businesses. The initial enquiries to view the space has been positive and shows an eagerness for some to get away from working from their dining table or bedroom and into a collaborative environment.

Empowering Entrepreneurs with Knowledge and Expertise
Beyond providing a collaborative place to work, the HC Workspace Hub will offer a comprehensive range of resources and support services to empower entrepreneurs on their journey. These include:

  • Free workspace: Entrepreneurs will have access to a dedicated workspace equipped with the necessary amenities to support their productivity and creativity.
  • Free training sessions: A series of training sessions led by internal and external experts covering a wide range of topics essential for business success, from legal and financial experts to marketeers and digital agencies.
  • Access to business mentors and advisors: Experienced business mentors and advisors will be available to offer guidance and support to entrepreneurs, providing personalised insights and tailored advice to help them overcome challenges and achieve their goals.
