The issues that have confronted the legal industry in recent years have had a significant effect on how law firms approach their space needs. As mergers, consolidations, downsizings, and transformative new technologies affect more and more firms, real estate — the ultimate overhead item — must now be thought of in terms of overall firm strategy.

Our law firm specialists understand these issues and can help your firm address them with space that can improve your work environment, enhance your brand, and help attract top talent, even as it reduces your costs.

We only represent tenants — never landlords or brokers — so our advice is always completely objective and free of possible conflicts. We have a thorough understanding of all major markets, and we can help you sort through the advantages of each in terms of both cost and the availability of employable personnel. We will bring our entire suite of integrated services to bear on your situation — from initial strategy to transaction negotiation to implementation and move-in.

Depending on your specific needs and objectives, we can help you deal with pressing issues, such as:

  • Consolidation of offices after a merger, eliminating wherever possible the duplication of functions and workflows
  • Administrative and back-office functions, which can be located in lower-cost neighborhoods or cities
  • Alternative workspace strategies to address the needs of highly mobile personnel whose space requirements in a given office are temporary but vital
  • Right-sizing of offices for both partners and associates, to bring space needs in line with industry realities
  • With the right space — and with our help — your firm can streamline operations, drive out costs, attract desirable people, and enhance your brand image.
