Global law firm DLA Piper has signed a lease agreement which will see its Luxembourg team relocate to the Nova building later this year. The prestigious 4,000 sq. m. building, strategically located in the heart of Luxembourg city on the Place de l'Etoile, offers both unrivalled access and visibility, and headroom for the continued growth of the team. The move is planned for end of 2023.
The move from the Kirchberg district to the Nova building is not only part of the firm's exceptional growth but also of DLA Piper's commitment to shaping the workplace for its people, providing flexible and modern working options and a more sustainable environment with ideal connectivity and amenities.
The updated building has been recognised as ‘very good’ by BREEAM, the world standard for sustainability credentials, standing it among Luxembourg City’s most responsible office buildings. This was a key criterion in the choice of new premises for the firm. DLA Piper strives to be a leading global business law firm and environmental sustainability is an integral part of its strategy and ethos. With over 90 offices worldwide, the firm is focused on reducing its energy consumption and carbon footprint, notably being the first law firm to sign a corporate Power Purchase Agreement.
The Nova building, owned by Monceau Assurances, has been completely redeveloped and is being modernised to become a first-class asset. The building now includes a rear extension, an additional floor and a complete renovation of the façade. The new location will offer an exceptional experience for clients, staff and community to foster connections, creativity and synergies.
Catherine Pogorzelski, Country Managing Partner of DLA Piper Luxembourg comments: “The prospect of moving into this brand new, fantastically located, and amazingly equipped building is very exciting. The Place de l'Etoile area will be completely revamped, rejuvenated and modernised. It will be a perfect reflection of the dynamic and growing team we have here in Luxembourg, and will place us at the very heart of its centre. This investment reflects both the strength of our client base, and our faith in Luxembourg’s continued role as a major financial and commercial hub.”
