Move in the Blick of an eye

Blick Rothenberg reacts quickly to pick up market share in London's new high-tech hub

NICE TO SEE that the spirit of enterprise has not yet quite been extinguished.

Blick Rothenberg has given the green light for tax partner Nilesh Shah to set up an office at the hilariously titled Silicon Roundabout – otherwise known to mere mortals as an area encompassing Old Street Roundabout where lots of high-tech companies have gathered.

Shah has set up a satellite office to provide services to the new and exciting businesses that are gravitating to the area, which is of course sensible stuff.

What’s more interesting is the speed of the move. Shah had considered the plan for a while, but from bringing it to the attention of fellow partners to moving into the new office? A mere month or so had passed.

As much as we want firms to make well considered business decisions, I found it quite refreshing that Blick was willing to move so swiftly. It could also be argued that the risk to the firm is relatively low cost-wise.

Good stuff. We’re always happy to hear of practices doing things a little less mundane. Get in touch if you have other interesting stories to tell.
