January 21, 2007 (San Francisco, CA) – Fenwick & West LLP announced today that after seven years at its Embarcadero Center West location, it will relocate its San Francisco office to 555 California Street. The custom-renovated 58,144 square foot office space has room for more than 100 attorneys and 70 staff. Seventy-seven attorneys will move into the office on Monday, January 22.
San Francisco office managing partner Laurence Pulgram said, "Fenwick & West has been a prominent part of the San Francisco legal landscape for the past seven years, and is rapidly expanding its practice in San Francisco. As our target technology and life sciences clients thrive in the city and the areas that immediately surround San Francisco, the resulting growth stretched our capacity in the Embarcadero Center West offices. This move allows us to prepare for additional anticipated growth in the foreseeable future."
Managing Partner Kate Fritz commented, "We were really bursting at the seams. Our new offices are more than a third larger than the Embarcadero Center West offices, and most importantly, they give us room to grow."
