London: Law firms are going open plan Anastasios71
The 'Professional London' report from CBRE predicts that more law firms will follow the example of CMS Cameron McKenna by downsizing and going open plan. Several firms will have options to break leases over the next six years and other law firms are nearing the end of their leases in that time.
More accountants per desk
Staff numbers at law firms in the UK capital are expected to rise to 9,700. Lawyers are expected to continue to offer a desk to each employee - in contrast with accountants and management consultants (which currently have 1.25 people per desk and are on course to have 1.75 people per desk by 2019).
