We’ve come a long, long way since the firm’s humble beginnings. Coinciding with our 85th birthday, we moved to new, bespoke, City premises on 6th May 2014.
When Harry and Reggie Lubbock set up shop in 1929, they based themselves in a flat in Endsleigh Court, Upper Woburn Place. Our move to the more central location of St Paul’s Churchyard, will take the firm’s total number of office moves to five in 85 years.
“The original firm was established in modest circumstances,” said Lubbock Fine managing partner Mark Turner, and I’ve no doubt that the founding partners would have been extremely proud to see how far we’ve come in the last 85 years. This 85th birthday move into the historic City of London propels us into an entirely new arena and toward further exciting opportunities for future development.”
“We’ve been busy planning our new space for the last few months,” said Lubbock Fine partner, Jeff Gitter, “and we worked hard to make sure that everything’s up and running in good time. We hope that you will bear with us for the first few weeks in case of any small teething troubles! We’re looking forward to welcoming as many clients, contacts and friends as possible to have a look around our new home in the coming few months.”
There are very few (if any) firms in the UK’s top 100 which have remained independent whilst growing year on year for over eight decades. Currently with 14 partners and over 100 staff, Lubbock Fine continues to develop and expand into existing and new UK and global markets with a unique range of services that belie a firm of our size.
The firm is one of the founder members of Russell Bedford International, now ranked as one of the world’s top accounting networks*. Some 460 partners, 5000 staff and 280 offices in more than 90 countries represent RBI across Europe, the Americas, Middle East, Africa, Indian Sub-Continent and Asia-Pacific.
“We’re really excited about having relocated,” added Mark Turner. “The location is fantastic, our building overlooks St Paul’s Cathedral with all of London’s history on our doorstep. That’s not to mention the wealth of restaurants, bars and cafes within a stone’s throw. It’ll certainly be a bit of a culture shock after 24 years at City Forum.”
