BakerHostetler Signs Lease for Space at The Proscenium to Accommodate Its Growing Atlanta Office

Press Releases / February 23, 2016

ATLANTA, Feb. 23, 2016 — BakerHostetler today announced it has signed a lease agreement for 67,960 square feet of space in The Proscenium in Midtown Atlanta. The move will consolidate 48 attorneys and 24 professional staff currently working in two separate offices. BakerHostetler first expanded into the Atlanta market in 2014 when it combined with intellectual property boutique firm Woodcock Washburn. In 2015, the firm added a large group of attorneys from McKenna Long & Aldridge, necessitating the move to a larger space.

“We’re excited to bring together both groups of attorneys into one dynamic, modern office that will improve efficiencies and provide us with space for substantial growth over the coming years,” said Joann Gallagher Jones, Managing Partner of the firm’s Atlanta office. “Our move into a prime location in Midtown affirms BakerHostetler’s commitment to expanding in this market. The lawyers who joined the firm with me have been very happy with our decision,” continued Jones. “We’ve found BakerHostetler to be a tremendous place from which to continue serving our clients at the highest level of quality and commitment.”

Attorneys in the Atlanta office practice in the areas of business, healthcare, intellectual property, litigation, real estate, and employment. BakerHostetler continues to be recognized by leading legal publications and market researchers for its work across the firm’s Business, Employment, Litigation, Intellectual Property, and Tax practices. Acritas, a legal market researcher, singled out the firm as a “Rising Star Brand” for top-level litigation; the firm also placed in the top 10 of 322 law firms ranked in BTI Consulting Group’s Client Service 30 survey. Law360 has named BakerHostetler’s Privacy and Data Protection team and Energy team among the nation’s best practices in its annual rankings.

BakerHostetler signed a 10½-year lease agreement to occupy Floors 24, 8, and 7 (partial). The move will take place at the end of February. The Proscenium is a 24-story, class-A high rise owned and managed by John Hancock Real Estate and located at 1170 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta, GA 30309-7676. CBRE, Inc. represented BakerHostetler.
