DALLAS - Local law firm Locke Lord has signed a lease that will move the firm to new offices within downtown’s Chase Tower at 2200 Ross Ave.
For 26 years, Locke Lord has occupied the same space, but will now move to 145,000 sf of new space on higher floors in the 55-story tower.
The 15-year lease will move the law firm’s main offices to floors 24-28, and the back-office operations will move to the fourth floor.
Locke Lord was convinced to stay in part because Chase Tower owner Hines is about to begin renovations on the lobby and is currently constructing a fitness center in the rotunda building.
The significance of the Locke Lord deal is even larger since the firm announced it will merge operations with Boston-based Edwards Wildman Palmer. The combined companies by early next year will become Locke Lord Edwards, the largest law firm based in Dallas.
