Polsinelli Shughart is a law firm on the move. From coast to coast, offices are preparing to relocate to new spaces to accommodate growth. In Los Angeles, the national law firm just moved to Century Plaza Towers at Century Park. The firm has leased nearly 26,000 square feet of Class “A” trophy office space at the landmark project, for ten years.

“Nearly two years ago when Lisa Quateman's firm joined Polsinelli, we made a commitment to continued growth in LA,” said Chairman and CEO Russ Welsh. “This new office will allow for that expansion."

Polsinelli Shughart opened its Los Angeles office in July of 2011, giving the firm a true coast to coast reach. Recently, offices in Chicago, Dallas, Denver, New York, Phoenix, St. Louis, and Wilmington have all relocated or expanded to make room for new attorneys and better serve clients. Attorneys in New York will move to a new space in April. The addition of new attorneys across the country has helped build a national law firm with more than 630 attorneys in 16 cities.

“It is rewarding and exciting to be on the ground floor of expanding a national law firm with a growing Los Angeles office,” said Los Angeles Managing Partner Lisa Greer Quateman. “We’re attracting high quality laterals and this new space will accommodate the strategic growth we have planned.”

Polsinelli Shughart joins a prestigious tenant roster that includes A+E Networks, Bank of America, City National Bank, Nuveen and Westfield US. Century Plaza Towers offers the firm a comprehensive array of amenities and services.

“Polsinelli Shughart's Los Angeles team is thrilled to be relocating to this iconic property,” said Quateman. “Our clients will find it easy to visit us, and both clients and our staff will enjoy the many amenities at the project.”

The new location is appealing to Polsinelli Shughart as it is a premier super block destination for entertainment, banking and wealth management with nearly 3.1 million square feet of space leased by the region’s leading professional services institutions.
