Laying Down the Law
A total of 630,000 sq ft of office space requirements in the
City of London have recently been announced by 6 of the largest law firms in
the capital, including Berwin Leighton Paisner which has a 2019 lease expiry on
its existing 160,000 sq ft lease at Adelaide House, EC4.

large law firms in the last year throughout the City core, according to research undertaken by EGi.

Baker McKenzie, Kingsley Napley, Withers, Squire Patton
Boggs and Sidley Austin are the other aforementioned occupiers considering
