Case study

Client: The Takeover Panel, an independent body which supervises and regulates takeovers and mergers in the UK.


Relocate the business to a contemporary office in the City of London, as close to a lease expiry as possible. The new property had to:

  • Be located within 0.5M of the Bank of England
  • Minimise disruption to the team’s working practices
  • Fulfil the client’s IT strategy
  • Meet stringent security and financial requirements
  • Minimise doubling of overheads.


  • Compliance
    Working with a regulatory body required stringent due diligence on all move costs including:
    • Rents
    • Service charges
    • SDLT
    • Potential Business Rates liability once reassessed by the Valuation Office Agency 
    • Fit-out costs of the new office
    • Dilapidations costs of the old office
  • Cost management
    Despite repeated challenges, the project was completed at a cost less than that of 10 years ago.


Knowing the complexity of the brief - finding the right space, at the right price, in the right location and fitting it out to our specific requirements - we are delighted that not only was it fulfilled on time and on budget, but the team was professional and a joy to work with, throughout.”
