JLL looks to expand specialist business with GC hire

Jones Lang LaSalle is set to grow its specialist business Tétris Design and Build with the recruitment of a new head of legal.

Tétris specialises in office, hotel and retail fit-out projects with a turnover of around €500m and over 500 staff delivering projects in 15 countries.

A spokesperson on behalf of Tétris said: “The growth of Tétris combined with the fact that the industry we operate in is regulated means that a pan-EMEA legal resource is now justified.

“Legal services will continue to be provided by our existing country lawyers (and external advisers) but co-ordinated and facilitated by this new central expert resource.”

JLL acquired Tétris in 2007 and have since delivered more than 4,000 projects for corporate, investor, retail and hotel clients. In 2014 the turnover hit $236m.

RPC advised the design and build contractor on the integration of Bluu after its strategic acquisition by JLL in 2015. The firm now operates in 23 offices in 16 countries across Europe, the Middle East and Africa and in Brazil.​
