Polsinelli will make way for anticipated growth by expanding to two new, contiguous floors of Century Park Tower this summer. Starting August 7, the firm will occupy the 28th & 29th floors allowing room for Polsinelli to more than double its number of attorneys and staff in Los Angeles. Currently, the Los Angeles office is home to 33 attorneys since opening in 2011 with a handful of attorneys.
“We are delighted to be a part of this amazing growth story,” said Los Angeles Managing Partner Lisa Greer Quateman. “Our Los Angeles attorneys are collaborating with offices across the country and it’s energizing to have a beautiful and functional space to best serve the needs of our clients and our community.”
The firm originally moved to the Century Park Tower in 2013, leasing nearly 26,000 square feet of Class “A” trophy office space at the landmark project for 10 years. Key lateral hires, including the addition of a large group of 18 attorneys in 2014, led to the expansion which doubles the square footage to 56,514 square feet.
“We opened a Los Angeles office in 2011 based on clients’ needs and we’re very pleased with the growth not only in California but nationally,” said Polsinelli Chairman Russ Welsh.
Los Angeles joins other key Polsinelli cities positioned for growth. The Dallas office recently relocated to Frost Tower, and Chicago, Denver and New York will move into new spaces in 2016.
