New Delhi, March 24: JLL, India’s largest real estate consultancy firm announced the launch of its new office at DLF Cyber Park, Gurugram.

It is a standing testament of how JLL can support clients’ planning office designs, be willing to experiment in challenging times, and always want to go the extra mile for their people and their clients alike.
