Rollits moves into new era as the firm prepares to celebrate a milestone anniversary

Rollits LLP which has roots in Hull that date back to 1841 when its founder John Rollit became a solicitor and then opened his law practice in Bowlalley Lane, has invested in its future with the purchase of new home.

The firm has purchased Citadel House on High Street, as it  prepares to celebrate its 175th anniversary and enter a new phase of growth.

The building, which offers 17,000 sq ft of grade A office space will shortly become Rollits new home in Hull following a move from Wilberforce Court.

Rollits, which currently employs 100 staff between offices in Hull and York, is aiming to increase its workforce over the next couple of years.

Ralph Gilbert, managing partner of Rollits, said: "Being right in the heart of the old town in Hull is perfect for us as we focus on scaling up activity in our core service areas and look to increase business in our niche sectors

"We will be starting work soon to create a brand new and modern working environment for our staff and a purpose built reception and meeting room complex for our clients.

"On the eve of our 175th anniversary next year and leading up to 2017 and the City of Culture we are delighted to have concluded the deal to buy Citadel House and are excited about the continuing development and success of our practice."
