Law firm William Fry has signed up to take 121,000 sq ft at Grand Canal Square in Dublin’s south docklands for its headquarters.

The deal, first tipped by Property Week in 14.09.07, will be a boost for a sluggish office market in the Irish capital.

William Fry will take the space in Chartered Land’s 4 Grand Canal Square, moving from Fitzwilton House, as part of its long-term growth.

William Fry managing partner Myra Garnett said: ‘We have outgrown our offices in Fitzwilton House and need to plan for the future. William Fry has been in existence for over 160 years and, not withstanding the downturn, we have confidence in the future growth and success of our firm.’

Bannon acted for the landlord and Jones Lang LaSalle acted for the tenant.

The move is expected to take place in 2010.
