Haynes and Boone Expands Orange County Office In New Location


COSTA MESA, Calif. – In preparation for continued strategic growth across multiple legal practice areas, Haynes and Boone, LLP announces it has signed a 12-year lease for the entire seventh floor of the prestigious Plaza Tower in Costa Mesa, a premier Class A high-rise adjacent to the Segerstrom Center for the Arts.

In making the October move from its current 17,000-square-foot space in Irvine, the law firm will step up to 23,000 square feet, allowing expansion to 43 attorney offices.

Office Administrative Partner Greg Michelson said the office upgrade is further evidence of the firm’s strong, long-term commitment to the strategic expansion of its California offices and general and specialty practice areas.

“Our clients are greatly expanding their business in the state and internationally, so we need the additional space to add lawyers to our various growing practice areas,” Michelson said. “Right now we have a strong focus on intellectual property, technology transactions, litigation, and corporate services, but demand is also increasing for real estate, securities, insurance coverage, and class action labor and employment expertise. We can only meet that demand with continued, measured growth that complements and enhances locally the multidisciplinary focus across the firm.”

Recent hiring at the Orange County office has included respected 26-year real estate practitioner Anthony Pierotti, whose practice meshes with the high-end work currently being conducted by the firm’s 75 real estate lawyers practicing in their New York, Dallas, Houston, Fort Worth and Mexico City offices. The firm is also growing its labor and employment practice with the help of its Orange County-based labor and employment partner, Tamara Devitt.

“The progressive growth of our presence on the West Coast is strategic to our firm’s national and international expansion,” Michelson said. “As we move into our new space later this year, we will continue to actively recruit and strategically hire lawyers who can perform the important client work in our various practice areas and provide excellent client service.”

Plaza Tower is more than 470,000 square feet of green office space that is home to some of the most respected professional firms and corporations in the country. The curved facade of Plaza Tower establishes a formal entrance and stands as a prominent and identifying feature in the business, cultural and social landscape of Orange County.
