East Midlands-based patent and trade mark attorneys, Serjeants, have announced the next phase of their regional expansion with the opening of their new office in Derby.
Serjeants, who appointed V Formation earlier this year as their outsourced marketing team, have been based in Leicester for almost forty years, and already have a second office in Lincoln. They have now identified Derby as the ideal location for its next strategic move and we have been delighted to help them with their launch into the city.
They were the first tenant to sign a contract for the new multi-million pound, flagship iHub development at Derby’s Infinity Park. The iHub is the centerpiece of the manufacturing-focused innovation and technology park, offering flexible workspace and support for businesses within supply chain innovation in transport. The development opened this month.
Commenting, Serjeants’ Partner Darran Thacker said, “Derby has long been the high-tech manufacturing capital of the East Midlands. We work closely with engineering businesses and the opening of the iHub, which is dedicated to supporting supply chain businesses for leading OEMs, provided us with the ideal opportunity to find a location close to the businesses we enjoy working with.”
He continued, “We are excited to be part of the community at the iHub as it grows, and hope to be an active and integral part of the wider Infinity Park Family as well as the dynamic and vibrant city of Derby. Our friendly and refreshing approach will hopefully be welcomed by businesses needing IP support and advice.”
The Derby office will be led by Partners Darran Thacker and Dean Lacey.
