AXA Real Estate Investment Managers (“AXA Real Estate”), the leading real estate portfolio and asset managers in Europe, announces that it has signed a new 15 year lease with leading law firm, Browne Jacobson for the top two floors of 6 Bevis Marks, a 14,864 m² office and retail building in London. The recently launched property has been developed as part of a joint venture with BlackRock.
The new lease will see Browne Jacobson, a growing top 60 law firm, relocate its London head office to 6 Bevis Marks, with the high quality office space facilitating its ongoing expansion and presence in the London market. Browne Jacobson will join Trireme Insurance Group, the parent company of insurance brokers Oxford and James Hamden International, which moved staff into the second floor in August this year.
