A California-based legal firm has moved its downtown Dallas office to the Arts District.
Sedgwick Llp has rented an office in the KPMG Plaza building on Ross Avenue near Pearl Street.
The law firm is moving its office from the Comerica Bank Tower on Main Street to the seventh floor of the Ross Avenue tower in the Hall Arts development.
“Our team is very excited to experience all the benefits of our new space,” Maria Karos, office managing partner of Sedgwick’s Dallas office, said in a statement. “KPMG Plaza at Hall Arts is the ideal location for us with a progressive design that showcases the office’s attitude and renewed energies as we look toward a bright future in Texas.”
Sedgwick joins Jackson Walker, UMB Bank, Spencer Stuart, Teknion and Hall Group as tenants in the tower, which is 80 percent leased.
Besides Dallas, San Francisco-based Sedgwick has offices in Austin, Chicago, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, New Jersey, New York, Orange County, Seattle, Washington D.C., Bermuda and London.
Kim Butler with Hall Group negotiated the new office lease in Dallas with Matt Heidelbaugh at Cushman & Wakefield.
The relocation of the law firm from Main Street to Ross Avenue follows a trend of legal tenants relocating to the north side of downtown and Uptown.
Sedgwick moved into one of several speculative office suites that developer Hall Group has built on the seventh floor of KPMG Plaza for businesses that want to locate in ready-built space.
