Why law firm Baker McKenzie is moving to the Dallas Arts District

Law firm Baker McKenzie has signed a lease for 50,000 square feet at 1900 North Pearl Street, a 25-story tower currently under construction. Later this year the firm will move its 65 lawyers and staff to the new location, and is working with architectural firm Gensler to build in flexibility and options for future growth to the new office’s design and layout. Per managing director of the Dallas office Mike Santa Maria “It will allow us to continue our strategic focus on recruiting and retention of highly talented people.” Source: Dallas Business Journal, December 27, 2016.
