DLA Piper is set to relocate its Sydney headquarters to Charter Hall’s No 1 Martin Place tower after negotiating a circa 6,000m2 lease agreement. The law firm will occupy five floors in the high-rise building, which is owned by No 1 Martin Place Trust and the Charter Hall Office Trust, on a 10-year lease term.
Andrew Darwin, managing partner Australia at DLA Piper, said Sydney is one of the law firm’s flagship offices and that the move to No 1 Martin Place puts the firm in the heart of the central business district’s business and financial community.
DLA Piper was represented by Michael Kearins, director of Cushman and Wakefield’s occupier services business. The leasing of No 1 Martin Place is being managed by CBRE’s James Patterson and Jenine Cranston in tandem with Greg Fisher and Mark Semple of DTZ.
