Eversheds advises KPMG on London City office relocation

  • United Kingdom


    Global law firm Eversheds has advised KPMG on the relocation of its London City office to 30 North Colonnade in Canary Wharf.

    From 2015, the firm will occupy 200,000 sq ft. across the top eight floors of the building, which is owned in a joint venture by Fimalac and Hearst Corporation.

    1,100 staff will be relocating to 30 North Colonnade, to work alongside the 5,000 staff who are already based next door at 15 Canada Square.

    The Eversheds team was led by partners Bruce Dear, Nefydd Jones and Richard Lampert assisted by Liz Fevyer, Jonathan Woodward and Jon Bowley.

    Bruce Dear said:

    “The transaction had a complex structure to give KPMG all of the extensive site rights which they required and to provide them with security of landlord performance. We look forward to advising KPMG on future mandates.”

    Jim Marsh, COO at KPMG, commented:

    “The decision to relocate our City office to 30 North Colonnade offers KPMG a unique opportunity to accommodate all of our London partners and staff in one central location, enabling enhanced collaboration opportunities which will ensure KPMG continues to provide the best service for our clients. This is in addition to providing a top quality working environment for our staff in a location which has proved successful for KPMG following the relocation from various offices within the City in 2010.”
