Dallas – The Fort Worth office of the law firm of Thompson & Knight LLP has taken occupancy of its new home at 777 Main Street in downtown Fort Worth. The new office location demonstrates Thompson & Knight’s ongoing commitment to the Fort Worth marketplace.
“We have proudly served Fort Worth for 30 years,” said Mike Sheehan, Thompson & Knight’s Fort Worth Office Leader. “Our new office provides a top-quality, modern space from which we can continue to support our clients and grow for many years to come.”
Thompson & Knight’s new office incorporates a number of traditional and innovative efficiencies, enabling the Firm to continue its high level of client service and maintain employee retention. Safeguarding confidential information continues to be a top priority for the Firm and its clients. As such, the new space has a number of safety features, including a state-of-the-art security system. In addition, extra soundproofing and sound-masking features increase protection of client confidentiality and other conversations. In preparation for the office relocation, the Firm greatly reduced the volume of paper records by converting the data to electronic format, a “green” effort that will continue in the new space.
The design of the new office reflects the feel of “Cowtown,” incorporating natural materials and textures accented with wood tones to create a culturally rich, yet comfortable, working environment. Natural light cascades into the “Work Café,” an area for attorneys and staff to reenergize during the day, which provides flexible meeting space and mobile recharging stations. A quieter work space can be found in the nearby Library, where notable legal writings adorn the walls and simple technology connections exist to enhance efficiency.
Adjacent to the entrance, the Main Conference Room showcases views overlooking the Trinity River Greenbelt and rapidly growing Fort Worth. Reflecting the history and heritage of the city, conference rooms are named for local Medal of Honor recipients Major Horace S. Carswell, Specialist 4th Class Robert D. Law, and Corporal Charles F. Pendleton.
777 Main is located in close proximity to Sundance Square, Bass Performance Hall, and the western hub for the Trinity Railway Express. Connected by sky bridge to the Hilton Fort Worth Hotel, the building is home to the historic Petroleum Club, Grace restaurant, and Rising Roll deli. Three parking garages service 777 Main with recently added TIBA parking technology, allowing toll tag access in all garages, as well as electronic valet and self-park visitor options. Operated by an award-winning team of property management professionals, 777 Main enjoys several amenities, including modernized passenger elevators with new interiors, a building conference center, an ATM, and full-service banking (expected on property in summer 2018).
Transwestern’s Kyle Poulson, Steve McCoy, and Alan Harrington represented Thompson & Knight in the lease transaction. DLR Group | Staffelbach handled the design of the Firm’s new space, and Scott & Reid handled the build-out.
