Kennedys signs lease on London’s Walkie-Talkie building

The global law firm has signed a 10-year lease to occupy two-and-a-half floors of the landmark skyscraper.

Kennedys Law has announced its London office is set to relocate into London’s Fenchurch Building, known as the ‘Walkie-Talkie’ building, as part of the firm’s workplace transformation programme.

The move is scheduled to take place in December 2022, and the firm has signed a 10-year lease to occupy roughly 50,000 square feet over two-and-a-half floors of the landmark skyscraper.

The Walkie-Talkie building comprises 34 floors of offices, topped with three floors of bars and restaurants and the Sky Garden.

Kennedys said the new office reflects the firm’s move to hybrid working which was introduced earlier this year.

Suzanne Liversidge, global managing partner at Kennedys, said: “It was important to remain in the heart of the London market close to many of our clients and contacts.”

Nick Thomas, senior partner, added: “This move is an exciting time for Kennedys. It’s the biggest change we have made as a firm and in the city where it all started more than 120 years ago. 

“It signals not only our continued growth and our commitment to our clients, but also our promise to provide the very best working environment for our people.”
