Shortening its name to JLL is a natural evolution of the firm’s historically rich brand, recognizing that it is a truly global company located in multiple markets, with a wide range of expertise applied through many different client services. It also represents its adaptation to different communication styles in different countries, languages and channels, and especially the use of digital and online.

JLL is easily pronounced and remembered, and many of our clients already consider it to represent the high calibre of services we offer.”
 
Doyle continued: “The JLL ‘Worldmark’ logo symbolises all of this: a global company with local roots, built from multiple types of expertise, working in collaboration with clients wherever they need our services.”
