After almost 200 years in Bath’s Queens Square, national law firm Stone King has moved all of its Bath-based people to a new head office in central Bath.

On Monday 1 November, the firm’s new reception, meeting rooms and offices opened to clients to continue business as usual in Upper Borough Court (UBC), Upper Borough Walls, a stone’s throw from Waitrose and Guildhall.

Steven Greenwood, Stone King’s Managing Partner, said:

“This exciting move means all of our Bath-based specialist sectors and teams are working together at the same city centre location, providing clients with a seamless and accessible service all under the same roof.”

Chair and head of Stone King’s Private Client Sector, Alison Allen, added:

“If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the past 18 months, it is the importance of constantly moving forward and adapting whilst holding on tight to our core values. We’re incredibly proud of Stone King’s working history in Bath and our story in the city now continues with a new chapter. We look forward to welcoming our clients at our new home.”

Stone King’s long-standing main office at 12 and 13 Queen Square and its 3 Queen Square base, which primarily housed the firm’s personal law teams, closed permanently on Friday 29 October. 

The firm has a working history of 236 years in Bath, and has been at its 12 and 13 Queen Square headquarters since 1832, not long after Jane Austen resided there.

In February 2018 Stone King took office space at UBC to accommodate ongoing growth and has now taken additional office space to facilitate a complete relocation of Bath teams under one roof.

The property has wheelchair access and a lift to take visitors to Stone King’s offices located on the second floor.
