Linklaters has decided to take on more London office space at its new home of 20 Ropemaker Street in the latest example of the industry rowing back on plans to shrink premises.

The firm, which originally signed the lease for the 300,000 sq ft base in February 2020 with the option of ‘right-sizing’ the space in the future, will add three additional floors to occupy all 17 levels of the development. The change will give it almost 20% more office space.
