Law firm Allen & Overy today revealed that it has secured a large sublet at its new London headquarters

Allen & Overy has sublet 80,000 sq ft (7,432 sq m) of its 750,000 sq ft (69,677 sq m) Bishops Square office in Spitalfields on the eastern fringe of the City to French bank Société Générale.

The arrangement, for which no financial details have been revealed, means Allen & Overy still has 120,000 sq ft (11,148 sq m) available to let 'on flexible terms'.

The developer of Foster & Partners-designed Bishops Square is Spitalfields Development Group, which is a joint venture between the Corporation of London and Hammerson.

Allen & Overy took a 25-year lease at around £45/sq ft (£484.38/sq m) on the building in September 2002.

Cushman & Wakefield advised Allen & Overy; Gerald Eve advised Société Générale.
