Clifford Chance avoids nearshoring with plans for low-cost hub in Canary Wharf

400 support staff to be housed five minutes away from HQ

While peers have chosen low-cost hubs farther afield in the UK, Clifford Chance (CC) is moving its back-office staff from its Canary Wharf headquarters to a new location five minutes’ walk away.

The firm will transfer 400 operational staff to an open-plan office in a building occupied by State Street Bank & Trust at Churchill Place in a bid to cut back on costs.
