Slaughter and May is advising Linklaters on its new lease agreement for 20 Ropemaker, a new development which will serve as the global firm’s London headquarters from 2026. The new building benefits from a prime City location, excellent facilities and flexible workspace that the firm will develop to create a state-of-the-art environment that will prioritise client service, employee health and wellbeing and help to attract and retain outstanding talent. Linklaters has committed to taking in excess of 300,000 sq.ft. of space with the option of right-sizing this space in future years. The firm will initially occupy 14 floors of the building, from the ground up.
Gideon Moore, Firmwide Managing Partner, said:
“This is an exciting moment in the long history of Linklaters and represents an important step into our future. Throughout the selection process, what has been clear to us is the value that our people place on the environment in which they work and the extraordinary benefits that 20 Ropemaker, built by a developer committed to achieving the highest standards and carefully designed to meet our requirements, will bring to the firm and to our clients.”
