Law firm Sintons is celebrating the tenth anniversary of moving into its iconic Newcastle home.

In February 2004, Sintons moved to The Cube after outgrowing its previous home in Osborne Terrace in Jesmond.

Since then, the firm has more than doubled in size, with 250 people now working in its four-storey building.

Sintons moved to The Cube when it was the only new development in the vicinity.

Since that time, the area has seen extensive development, with Newcastle University Business School and the Sandman Hotel being built, as well as the ongoing work on Newcastle Science City.

Alan Dawson, chairman of Sintons, said: “At the time we committed to moving into The Cube, it was a big decision – ten years ago, this was not the usual type of premises a law firm would have.

“We were one of the first businesses of our type to move into modern, open plan premises, and many probably raised their eyebrows, but most law firms now operate out of premises of a similar layout.”
