Cloak of silence falls over Rogers/Goldschmied legal battle

The Richard Rogers Partnership has refused to comment on unconfirmed reports that former managing partner Marco Goldschmied is suing the practice.

It is believed that a High Court row has broken out about the value of the land occupied by the Rogers head office on the Thames in Hammersmith. The owner of the land is the RRP Pension Fund, to which the practice pays rent.

It is understood that Goldschmied believes that the pension fund should charge RRP a lot more for its prime plot of real estate.

Both Goldschmied and Rogers were unavailable to confirm the details of the affair, but what is certain is that the once-close double-act no longer talks.

They fell out over leadership of the practice in 2004 and Goldschmied walked away from the firm that he had co-led for over 30 years.
