September 27, 2010

The Phoenix office of national law firm Polsinelli Shughart PC relocated to the new 27-story CityScape high-rise in downtown Phoenix effective September 27, 2010. The move is a result of the explosive growth of the Phoenix office which tripled in size last year to 55 attorneys. The firm’s new space at First and Washington Streets will accommodate the Phoenix office’s attorneys and staff, and allow for future expansion. Previously, the Phoenix office of Polsinelli Shughart was located in midtown at 3636 N. Central Ave.

“Relocating downtown puts us in the heart of the legal and financial communities in Phoenix,” said Phoenix Managing Partner Marty Harper.

Polsinelli Shughart occupies nearly 70,000 square feet on three floors, and more than ten percent of the building’s 600,000 square feet of Class A office space. The firm signed a multi year lease with RED Development LLC with an option to extend the lease and to take an additional floor. Gensler, a global architecture, design and consulting firm, provided interior architectural services, and The Weitz Company completed construction.

“The move downtown works well with our strategic plan to build a first generation law firm,” said Harper. “Over the past two years, we have grown by expanding our corporate capabilities. We expect that growth to continue and we’re excited to be in the heart of downtown.”

Harper is available to talk to reporters about:

• Relocating to CityScape
• The growth of Polsinelli Shughart
• Law firm management, legal trends
• Growing the local economy internationally as Harper is the chair of Mackrell, a global network of law firms
