This year’s Workspace Trends report uses both data gathered during the UK 200 research process, and examples of ways in which law firms are using their office space, to analyse current trends in this market. It looks at the cost of space in the UK and in London and how much space firms are allocating to staff and lawyers. Case studies in this year’s report include a focus on how DLA Piper and Shoosmiths are breaking out of the conventional mould in Manchester, and how Macfarlanes and Travers Smith have reinvented their working practices around newly-designed offices. The report also talks to property consultants to get their views on the current market.
