Growing Law Firm to Relocate Uptown Office

Barnes & Thornburg Moving to PwC Tower by Year-End
April 9, 2018
Three years after opening a new Dallas office, law firm Barnes & Thornburg plans to relocate its growing legal digs in Uptown to PwC Tower.

The firm has signed a lease for the entire 7th floor, or about 28,000 square feet of space, at 2121 Pearl St. in PwC Tower, a 20-story high-rise at Klyde Warren Park and Pearl St. in Uptown, with options to potentially take down more space, if needed.

"We are at the point where it was time to have a more permanent home," Mark Bayer, the managing partner for the Dallas office, told CoStar News. "This also helps send the message that Barnes & Thornburg will be a longtime player in Dallas."

The 10-year lease gives the firm monument signage in front of the building and signage within the tower's lobby.

Bayer said the signage at PwC Tower will help promote the law firm's brand as it grows. In all, about 30 attorneys and employees plan to move from the firm's current office at 2100 McKinney Ave. once build-out of its new space wraps up in September.

Deal Summary:

Tenant: Barnes & Thornburg

Size: 28,000 SF

Address: 2121 Pearl St.

Landlord: Trammell Crow Co. and MetLife

Landlord Rep: Dennis Barnes, Clay Gilbert and Shannon Brown - CBRE

Tenant Rep: Phil Puckett and Harlan Davis - CBRE
The law firm will have room to nearly double its attorneys to about 45 lawyers with this lease. Bayer said the firm has an option to lease another floor.

Barnes & Thornburg is the latest law firm to up its real estate game looking for name recognition in Dallas-Fort Worth. In recent years, a growing number of law firms are seeking signage or high-profile addresses to add to their resume in the market.
