Montpellier Legal announce new offices in Stroud


Gloucestershire conveyancing specialists, Montpellier Legal, have announced their expansion into new premises at Five Valleys in Stroud.

The leading legal firm have committed to 2000 sq ft of office space currently under construction at the town centre shopping centre, which is simultaneously undergoing a £30m refurbishment.

With existing branches already based in Cheltenham & Gloucester, the firm were encouraged by local agency demand to pick Stroud for their latest expansion and can’t wait to work within the local community, helping people to buy or sell their homes.

The team came to celebrate a traditional topping out ceremony at the site last week joining key representatives from property developers, Dransfield Properties, who have been remodelling the centre since 2019.

“We are thrilled to open our new office in Stroud and further enhance our presence in Gloucestershire,” said Montpellier Legal CEO Simon Thomas.

“Having recently won a prestigious industry award, this expansion cements our dedication to providing top-notch conveyancing services to our clients and
supporting them every step of the way in their property transactions.

“Moving into Stroud will open the door for yet more exceptional people to join our growing team. We’ll be looking to recruit for several more positions and would encourage potential candidates to get in contact with us as soon as possible.”

Director for Dransfield Properties, Andrew Malley, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be welcoming Montpellier Legal to Five Valleys.

“This is the culmination of a lot of work in terms of procuring the building and the firm will be bringing a professional business into the centre of Stroud.

“The company is expanding and bringing in more jobs for local people and in doing so is supporting the business community in Stroud.”

The special topping out ceremony marked the completion of the steel work by local contractors, S & C Bennett Construction.  

Flags have historically been hung at building sites as part of topping out ceremonies, and so two Union Jacks were draped on the scaffold to help mark the occasion.

The new building, which is due to be completed in time for the legal team moving into in the summer, marks another milestone in the overall development of the former run down Merrywalks shopping centre. Following an extensive refurbishment programme the centre has been brought back to life becoming a thriving retail and leisure destination which includes a Borough Market style food hall, new high street names such as Sports Direct and JoJo Maman Bebe and high-quality independents such as Sandersons Boutique department store.

The centre is now a hub for people to work, live, shop and enjoy leisure time with an onsite bowling facility and VUE cinema completing the offer.

As modern solicitors, the Directors at Montpellier Legal were drawn to the newly modernised development due to its town centre location, good accessibility and the range of amenities close by for both their team of specialist staff and clients to use.

Nick Ponting, Chief Operating Officer, added: “Having grown up and worked in Stroud for a number of years, it’s really exciting to launch our newest office in the town, specifically within Five Valleys. Bringing Montpellier Legal to Stroud will further enhance the experience for our clients and introducers.”
