International law firm Ashurst, headquartered in London is member of the Silver Circle of leading UK law firms. It has 25 offices in 15 countries, employing approximately 1,600 partners and lawyers.
Business Space has exclusively advised Ashurst LLP in Belgium in their search and selection of alternative properties and has successfully negotiated financial conditions and a new lease.
Ashurst now occupies nearly 2,000 sq m of office space in the Louise Claus building at Avenue Louise 489.
The building is located on the Avenue Louise, one of the most prestigious avenue of Brussels. Both during and after office hours, the area breathes a particular atmosphere, with stores, restaurants, hotels and the beautiful Bois de la Cambre nearby. The location of the building was an important factor for Ashurt LLP Belgium, as it will allow them to attract new employees and lawyers more easily.
'Several agents sometimes act for both owners and tenants, but Business Space has a specific focus on tenants and exclusively acts for tenants and therefore do not have any conflict of interest with landlords.’ According to David Du Pont, Head of Real Estate at Ashurst, 'As a law firm, this was a very important element for us in selecting them as our advisors'.
According to Daniel Coltof, Senior Partner at Business Space, 'We have been able to negotiate a very attractive deal for our client, having the right location and building and corresponding to the high corporate values of Ashurst LLP'.
