Dentons signs lease on Liverpool Street office

Global law firm Dentons has signed a new lease that will see it relocate its City office to Liverpool Street.

The largest law firm in the world by lawyer headcount will reportedly occupy around 80,000 sqft of One Liverpool Street, a new ten-storey office building, due for completion in 2026. The firm’s current lease at 1 Fleet Street expires in 2025.

Dentons declined to comment.

The office move will perhaps come as welcome news to the firm’s lawyers, with one insider describing the current digs as “dated” in our latest Trainee and Junior Lawyer Survey.

A number of major City players have announced plans to relocate offices.
