Modern and efficient space supports firm’s West Coast growth trajectory
Los Angeles, December 6, 2022 – Mayer Brown announces its new and expanded office in downtown Los Angeles, located in Brookfield Properties’ Wells Fargo Center at 333 S Grand Avenue. The firm signed an 11-year lease for the approximately 55,000 square foot space and includes 98 individual offices, nearly double the number in its previous location.
“This exciting move signifies the firm’s investment in Los Angeles, which is a critical market for our clients and an anchor for us on the West Coast,” said Mayer Brown Chair Jon Van Gorp.
Visitors to the new space, located atop DTLA’s historic Bunker Hill, will be greeted by a grand reception area with expansive views of the Los Angeles skyline stretching to the ocean. An exterior patio on the 47th floor provides alternative meeting options and opens to the main lobby and conference rooms for larger receptions. The office has a variety of social spaces and private conference rooms that are conducive to both collaborative and individual styles of working, and the walls showcase the work of California artists.
“Through this move, we are writing our own LA script; creating a beautiful facility with improved amenities and an efficient workspace focused on employee wellness and one that can accommodate our continued growth,” said John Nadolenco, managing partner of Mayer Brown’s Los Angeles office.
Mayer Brown was represented by CBRE which helped negotiate the lease with building owner Brookfield Properties.
Mayer Brown’s Los Angeles office, established in 1985, comprises more than 60 lawyers engaged in principal practice areas, including Banking & Finance; Corporate & Securities; Government; Environmental; Litigation & Dispute Resolution; Real Estate Markets; and Tax. In recent years, the office has steadily expanded its client offerings across industries—adding key laterals to core areas—from data privacy to financial services class action defense.
