Shepherd FM has reaffirmed its position as one of the UK’s leading providers of facilities management to the legal services sector, after being appointed by international law firm Simmons & Simmons.

Shepherd FM will provide a range of Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) and fabric solutions at Simmons & Simmons’ landmark City Point HQ, an instantly recognisable fixture of the iconic London skyline, as well as at its Eden House offices in the heart of the City’s financial district.

The appointment further strengthens the company’s reputation for delivering five-star service and energy efficiency innovation. Shepherd FM’s dedicated on-site team will provide 24-hour support.

Shepherd FM, part of Shepherd Group, has enjoyed sustained growth over the past few years including a 30 per cent increase in turnover last year, whilst maintaining an unrivalled 98 per cent customer retention rate, and this growth is set to continue.

Established in the City of London in 1896, today leading international law firm Simmons & Simmons has offices in key financial centres across Asia, Europe and the Middle East and a strong track record of delivering high-quality legal services to its clients in some of the fastest growing markets in the world.
