WeWork files for bankruptcy in the US: what does this mean for businesses in the UK?

If you didn’t already know, WeWork, the shared office firm that once hit the heights of being valued at $47bn (£38bn) on the market has been forced to file for bankruptcy in the US. Furthermore, WeWork filing will help to give it protection from its creditors and landlords as it restructures its substantial debts. 

So, what does this latest development mean for UK businesses that currently rent office space from WeWork? 

Without a doubt, this is something to be concerned about as it could potentially mean that your business could get thrown out of some of the office space you currently hire from them in the UK. 

There may already be signs of this happening particularly in London as it was discovered by the BBC that WeWork was shutting at least one office in London’s popular South Bank which could indicate that more closures could be forthcoming as the company tries to get to grips with its finances before it's too late.
