Goodman Derrick advises The Office Group TOG on the acquisition of The Media Village Fitzrovia

Leading London law firm Goodman Derrick has advised The Office Group (TOG) on their latest acquisition of The Media Village on Great Titchfield Street, a transaction which has brought TOG’s London portfolio to a total of 43 buildings.  This is the sixth acquisition that the Goodman Derrick real estate law team has acted on in 18 months (representing over 265,000 square feet).

TOG secured a 16-year lease on the 47,000sqft property in Fitzrovia from landlord The Langham Estate. TOG is to comprehensively refurbish the 1930s building to create a design-led office space suited to TOG’s modern working community.

Dominic Whelan, Partner and lead lawyer in Goodman Derrick’s TOG legal team, commented:

“It’s exciting for the Goodman Derrick legal team to be part of the unique TOG success story. TOG deserve all of the accolades they receive, not only for the outstanding and market-leading product they offer to their clients but also for the hard work and dedication that underpins it all. ”
