Baker McKenzie leases 4,400 sqm in Varso Tower

January 29, 2024

HB Reavis, an international workspace provider, has signed a 10-year lease with Baker McKenzie Polska. The international law firm is to relocate its Polish branch to Varso Tower, claiming approximately 4,400 sqm of space. By early 2025, Baker McKenzie lawyers and tax advisers will begin work on 35th to 37th floor, some of the highest located offices in Poland. As a result, the occupancy rate at the award-winning office tower in central Warsaw is now approx. 85%.

Baker McKenzie is topping prestigious international rankings of law firms and is recognised as the world’s strongest legal brand by the Thomson Reuters Global Elite Law Firm Brand Index. A combination of international footprint and global expertise with local know-how, diverse practices and an understanding of the evolving global and local business environment have been Baker McKenzie's trademark and competitive advantage in the Polish market for more than 30 years. Baker McKenzie Polska employs more than 170 lawyers and tax advisers with experience in large, often pioneering transactions and projects for leading international corporations as well as Polish entrepreneurs and institutions.

We were looking for a modern space that epitomises the values of Baker McKenzie,

ensure exceptional experience to both our clients and all our employees and partners as well as our visitors. We’re happy we chose the unique place that Varso Tower is in Warsaw,

said Weronika Achramowicz and Marcin Iwaniszyn, partners at Baker McKenzie responsible for the firm’s relocation project.

Varso Tower offers a total of 70,000 sqm of premium office space that supports employee wellbeing and is aligned with the latest ESG trends. Designed by Foster + Partners, the tallest skyscraper in the European Union was created with health and inclusivity in mind, as evidenced by its WELL certificates and Barrier-Free Building status.

We’d like to thank Baker McKenzie for their trust. We’re proud that one of the largest and most frequently recommended law firms in Poland

will soon begin a new chapter in its history at Varso Tower. The offices in our building meet the expectations of the most demanding employers driven by high ESG standards. The 85% occupancy rate speaks to the great interest Varso Tower attracts from tenants, as every new contract we sign is a testament to its leading role in the Warsaw office market

says Natalia Kasperska, Senior Leasing Manager at HB Reavis.

Baker McKenzie was advised by the experts from Colliers.

We’d like to thank our client, Baker McKenzie, for their trust

and engaging us again to work on another lease. We’re thrilled that Baker McKenzie employees and clients will soon be able to enjoy top-quality spaces in Warsaw,

adds Katarzyna Tasarek-Skrok, Associate Director, Office Agency at Colliers.

The skyscraper is part of a mixed-use place developed by HB Reavis that includes offices, a hotel, an innovation hub, restaurants, a fitness club, and a health centre. The award-winning project has transformed a once-neglected area in one of the new symbols of Warsaw. Its central location ensures many amenities within easy reach and excellent access to public transport. The buildings were also given the highest score in the BREEAM certification system, reflecting their low energy demand. The designers also thought about the public space, planting dozens of trees around the tower, on the roof, and in the spacious lobby decorated with a handmade mosaic.
