Napthens advises creative studio on MediaCity expansion

The Commercial Property team at Napthens solicitors has advised animation, virtual reality and augmented reality specialists Studio Liddell on a move to larger premises.

Studio Liddell was founded in 1996 by Ian Liddell, Jon Liddell and Andrew Jones and has since grown to include two offices in central Manchester and MediaCity, employing 26 people.

The studio has grown from creating imagery for advertising, to developing and producing children’s TV shows, technical animation, apps, and virtual and augmented reality.

Studio Liddell has now taken a lease on the groundfloor in the East Wing of MediaCity’s landmark The Victoria building from Peel South East Limited, moving from its current location at 112 Broadway.

The move, expected to be complete mid-December, will give the business space to expand.

Studio Liddell was advised on the move by Kate Mallaband, partner in the Commercial Property team at regional law firm Napthens.
