Irwin Mitchell advises Honda on drive into new Bracknell HQ
06 Feb, 2014
National law firm Irwin Mitchell’s real estate department has advised Honda Motor Europe on its deal to take 70,000 sq ft at Reflex, Cain Road, Bracknell in one of the largest Thames Valley office lettings in the past 12 months.
Honda is relocating its European HQ from Langley in Berkshire to Reflex and will be moving later this year. It has taken a new 10 year lease at an undisclosed rent.
Reflex comprises 110,000 sq ft of refurbished offices and Honda will be joining General Motors and Netgear as tenants here.
The team at Irwin Mitchell was led by real estate partner Rob Thompson (pictured) assisted by Associate Claire Illingworth.
Rob Thompson commented: “We have been advising on all aspects of Honda’s real estate strategy including arrangements with dealerships, sale of existing sites and purchase and development of new dealership sites as well as Honda’s own corporate real estate requirements. This major relocation is the cherry on the cake and is one of the largest in the area for the past year. We are delighted to be advising this prestigious client on such an important move.”
