“It made sense for an AmLaw firm like Wilson Elser to be downtown, where other similar practices are located today. This location provides the firm with state-of-the art new offices that reflect its culture and with room to grow.”
Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 09, 2014
Having signed a 13,500-square-foot lease in 2013, national law firm Wilson Elser has recently moved into new office space on 33rd floor at Two Houston Center (909 Fannin Street) – from 5847 San Felipe. The firm relocated to Houston’s CBD from the Galleria area, where it had been located for more than 10 years.
Chris Tarzon and David Endelman, managing directors with global commercial real estate services firm Studley, represented Wilson Elser in the leasing transaction. Debbie Wilson of CBRE represented the building owner, Crescent HC Investors.
According to Tarzon, Wilson Elser was looking to move downtown after Powers & Frost merged with it at the beginning of 2013. “It made sense for an AmLaw firm like Wilson Elser to be downtown, where other similar practices are located today. This location provides the firm with state-of-the art new offices that reflect its culture and with room to grow.” The firm has an option to the entire 33rd floor.
“The long term lease reflects the firm’s commitment to Houston – both our clients and the legal team here,” said Sharla J. Frost, regional managing partner of Wilson Elser’s Houston office. “This move puts us in the center of Houston’s legal community and provides us the flexibility to meet our long-term growth goals. We are excited to be a part of the burgeoning business development in downtown Houston and look forward to growing along with the city’s expansion.”
