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.

Same to MC firms. That’s what associates tell themselves everyday while earning a measly wage compared to their US competitors.



Well-known among freshers as the law firm with the McDonald’s business model.



Thanks for your brilliant insight fresher. If you knew anything about the profession you would know that CMS, DLA Piper, Baker McKenzie, and most international firms operate the same verein structure. Back to your tort revision and stop embarrassing yourself.



Apply ointment to the third degree burns.



To be fair to them, I have worked for both DLA (admittedly a while back now) and Dentons, and I’d take DLA over Dentons any day. Dentons really is the McDonald’s of law firms.



Why did you feel that way about Dentons, genuinely curious

I think you’ll find the largest law firm in the world by head count is actually Yingke which has now over taken Dentons, 13,299 vs’ 12,064 lawyers. I think this article needs updating 😂.
