Bird & Bird is closing its Berlin base due to the impact of COVID-19, a spokesperson confirmed on Tuesday.
The space, leased from a co-working provider, MindSpace, is located in Berlin’s Friedrichstrasse, near to the Brandenburg Gate.
Since the office was slated to house lawyers with business in Berlin temporarily, there are no job cuts associated with the closing of the space, according to the spokesperson.
The firm opened the base just over a year ago. It said at the time it would be used for client meetings and as a venue for conferences and events.
Bird & Bird has permanent German offices in Düsseldorf, Munich, Frankfurt and Hamburg.
