Global firm DLA Piper is moving its Dublin office to a corner spot between Molesworth Street and Dawson Street in the autumn.
The firm previously occupied the former St Stephen’s Green HQ of Anglo-Irish Bank, which was wound down after nationalisation in 2009.
The new DLA Piper office comprises 30,000 square feet over six floors and will accommodate a growing headcount, which now stands at more than 75 people.
Leased until 2037
The new lease runs until 2037 and allows space for growth of the practice.
Country managing partner David Carthy said that since opening in Ireland in 2019, the firm has expanded across all seven of its practice groups.
40 Molesworth Street was extensively renovated in 2017 with sustainability and energy efficiency in mind.
Graham Quinn, head of real estate at DLA Piper, said there is a growing appetite for offices with best-in-class technology, sustainability and energy efficiency credentials.
“Spaces that can meet and exceed these expectations will continue to be in demand,” he commented.
