International Law Firm Renews Lease at Comerica Bank Tower

Cozen O’Connor law firm moved out of Comerica’s 34th floor and into the 31st floor as part of a plan to refresh its space.

Here’s a deal you don’t hear about often: a downtown Dallas law firm has renewed its lease and moved out of its office.

HighGround Advisors signed a 25,920-square-foot lease at downtown Dallas’ Comerica Bank Tower.

Cozen O’Connor, an international law firm based in Philadelphia, has renewed its 12,000-square-foot lease in Comerica Bank Tower at 1717 Main St. As part of its goal to refresh its office, Comerica’s owner moved Cozen from the 34th floor to the 31st floor of the 60-story skyscraper.

The landlord built out next generation law firm space for Cozen and designed the common corridor with a more modern aesthetic, according to a press release.

“The new space is designed to incorporate the things today’s law firms are looking for in their office environment, yet is very efficient relative to the key metric of attorney to square foot ratio.” Cushman & Wakefield’s Mike Gosslee says. Gosslee represented Cozen. M-M Properties’ Mike Silliman represented Comerica Bank Tower owner, a joint venture of M-M Properties and TriGate Capital.

Cozen’s renewal comes just after a new lease of 24,000 square feet for Southwest Media Group and new lease of 26,000 square feet for HighGround Advisors. Cozen’s renewal allows Comerica Bank Tower to retain its accolade as the building with the most AmLaw-rated firms in Dallas.
