The legal office landscape has shifted dramatically over the last few months. Firms that seemed forever rooted in the traditional office layout are now seeing the possibility of hybrid workspaces with most staff working from home – when many had never done so in their lives. Even long-term lease structures are looking at a possible shake up for the first time in 30 years as a result of the pandemic.

Giles Knapman and Kai Schindlmayr, Directors of Kernel Property, return to ALPMA to discuss the opportunities present in the commercial property market. Giles and Kai will provide an outlook for the future legal office environment and the rising need for change in commercial lease structures.

Kernel Property is Australia’s leading independent tenant advisor to law firms, specialising in sourcing new premises and negotiating lease terms, managing the delivery of new workplace projects as well as minimising the cost of make good obligations.
