BWB advises Diabetes UK on new London lease

Bates Wells Braithwaite has advised Diabetes UK, the leading UK diabetes charity, on the taking of a lease of a new 25,000sq ft office building located at 126 Back Church Lane, Aldgate East, London.

Diabetes UK will be the sole occupant of the six-storey building, which will serve as the charity’s new headquarters, following their relocation in 2016 from 10 Parkway, in Camden, north London, which the charity has occupied for 15 years.

Richard Roberts worked with Diabetes UK from the early stages of the negotiations with the landlord, Boultbee Brooks LLP. BWB advised on the lease negotiation and also provided construction, tax and planning advice.
