Fancy new premises for firm

by Hannah Norton07 Sep 2015
Duncan Cotterill is moving to a 1903 heritage building in Auckland’s inner-city.

The firm will take up residence in the historic Australis Nathan Building on Takutai Square in October 2016.

“The move to this new premium office location marks an exciting stage in the growth of our firm and will position us well for further expansion in Auckland,” Duncan Cotterill  partner Bruce Patterson said.

“We are proud to be based in an area that has such a rich history and are looking forward to celebrating our further success in this new home.”

The firm is currently based in the CPO Building on Queen St.

The new 970m3 office will house its Auckland-based corporate, commercial, property, employment and litigation teams.

Constructed in 1903, the Australis Nathan Building is a Historic Places Trust-registered building

Its renovation is part of the wider $1 billion Cooper and Company Britomart redevelopment, which began in 2001

The Australis Nathan Building was originally named the Launceston Building, after the birth place of Arthur Nathan, nephew of David Nathan who established the Nathan family as merchants in Auckland.

Meanwhile, another firm is moving across the CBD.

Meredith Connell is leaving Auckland’s legal highway – Shortland Street – for greener pastures in Victoria St in March next year.

They are currently based in the Forsyth Barr Tower.
