Bird & Bird has complained to its landlord after a burlesque club, known as Volupté, opened underneath its Chancery Lane office.
Volupté opened in mid-March and shares the same building and landlord as the firm, which objected to the changed use of the property.
Bird & Bird refused to comment on whether it would take its landlord to court.
The club's co-owner Delores von Cotier said: "We're both surprised and saddened by Bird & Bird's reaction to Volupté. We are without doubt a perfect place for corporate events and client meetings and would welcome them through the door."
The Lawyer understands that the difference between burlesque club Volupté and a conventional strip club is that it operates a strict 'no nipple' policy. Entry costs £15.
