Dechert signs lease at Times Square

Dechert London has concluded its protracted search for new premises with a deal to take up offices at Times Square. The Philadelphia-based firm has signed a lease to take on 55,000sq ft at Times Square, 160 Queen Victoria Street, with an option to take additional space. The office will accommodate 280 fee-earners and support staff. Dechert is hoping to move from Serjeant’s Inn this year. The hunt began in 1999, when the firm was still Titmuss Sainer Dechert.
