Charles Russell Speechlys and Mishcon de Reya have worked together to advise Derwent London on all of the pre-lettings of the office space at the Brunel Building which includes the new UK headquarters for Sony Pictures Entertainment, The Premier League, Coach and private equity house Hellman & Friedman.
The landmark Paddington development comprises 243,000 sq ft of office space spread over 16 storeys which is encased in an external structure allowing column free internal areas.

It is a real pleasure and privilege to work alongside the team at Derwent".
