Sheppard Mullin Renews, Expands In Dallas
Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP announced today that the firm has renewed and expanded its Dallas office lease, located in Chase Tower at 2200 Ross Avenue. The firm is doubling the office footprint from 25,902 square feet to 51,804 square feet. Under the new lease agreement, the office will undergo a full renovation that will modernize the office operations, while allowing the firm to continue its day-to-day work in place.
“We’ve experienced tremendous growth in Dallas, so expanding our physical footprint is the next evolution in supporting our growing client base and our attorneys,” said Steven G. Schortgen, Dallas office managing partner. “Adding more space and undergoing a renovation to create a modern, efficient workspace will accommodate both immediate and future growth needs, while allowing us to continue to attract and retain talented professionals. Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) partnered with us to achieve a great result at the Chase Tower.”
Sheppard Mullin opened the Dallas office in April 2018 – the firm’s eleventh U.S. location and fifteenth worldwide – with 18 attorneys. Since then, the office has nearly doubled the number of attorneys and continues to deepen its bench strength in the areas of commercial litigation, corporate/M&A, finance, intellectual property, investment management, labor and employment, real estate and white collar criminal defense.
JLL Managing Directors Brooke Armstrong and Bret Hefton represented Sheppard Mullin in the lease negotiation. Stream Realty’s JJ Leonard and Matt Wieser represented the property’s ownership group, Fortis Property Group.
