After adding a group of commercial litigation and finance lawyers last October to more than double the size of its Dallas operations, Sidley Austin said it relocate to the Trammell Crow Center at 2001 Ross Ave. The law firm plans to move into its expanded office space on the east side of Dallas' CBD from its current KPMG Centre location later this month.
Sidley leased a total of 63,946 square feet covering two and a half floors in the 50-story office tower, taking space formerly occupied by a pair of other law firms, including one and a half floors absorbed from Baker Botts and another floor from Vinson & Elkins. The two-year lease provides space for 82 attorneys.
"With the dramatic growth Sidley experienced in Dallas in 2013, we knew all along that additional office space would be required," said Yvette Ostolaza, managing partner of Sidley’s Dallas offices. "The next step is to move into new space that will allow our world class corporate, litigation, finance, energy, and intellectual property teams to stretch out and continue to grow."
Craig Wilson and Randy Cooper with Cassidy Turley represented Sidley Austin. Stream Realty Partners represents the JPMorgan Chase-owned office tower. Stream also has its Dallas office located in the building, which is 84% leased according to CoStar information.
