Davenport Lyons to move offices

Davenport Lyons has decided to move to new offices in the West End despite an exodus of law firms moving out of the district in search of cheaper rents and bigger office space. The company has taken 31,500 square feet of space over three floors at 6 Agar Street in Covent Garden and will move in September after 23 years in Old Burlington Street, Mayfair. The £65m Agar Street office block is owned by Legal & General and was finished last year.
