So Jones Lang LaSalle and BNP Paribas Real Estate are sharing gold today after winning one of the most high profile office leasing contracts in the country.
The duo have been appointed by Aussie developer Lend Lease and London & Continental Railways to secure tenants for the 4m sq ft International Quarter Stratford City campus on the edge of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Other players in the running were Knight Frank, CB Richard Ellis, Drivers Jonas Deloitte and King Sturge.
An honourable mention has to go to Knight Frank who I gather got the bronze medal on this one.
CBRE were effectively cup tied due to other activity they have going on in the area creating a possible conflict of interests.
But JLL were always going to be a strong contender for this appointment as they have been giving background advice in the area for years, not to mention a long-running relationship they have with Lend Lease.
How it sits with JLL's role as Olympic Park Legacy Company adviser remains to be seen.
