AUSTIN, Texas – Investing in the future, Haynes and Boone, LLP announced that the firm is expanding and redesigning its downtown office.

Haynes and Boone signed a 10 year lease for a full floor of office space at One American Center, at the corner of Sixth and Congress. The firm is presently located on the 16th Floor of that building, and will move three floors down to the space previously occupied by the Metropolitan Club. In doing so, the firm will increase its space to approximately 31,000 square feet, which will allow for planned expansion. The space is currently shell space, having previously been occupied by the Metropolitan Club.

“Obviously, this reflects a significant commitment by Haynes and Boone to Austin and the firm’s Austin office,” said Jeff King, administrative partner of the Austin office.

The firm opted to remain in the same building, after conducting a wide-ranging search and exploring many options throughout Austin. “Though we saw many attractive possibilities, in the end the downtown location was accommodating to our wide-ranging representation of a broad base of industry,” King said. “We will be replacing our offices and virtually everything in them, so we are excited about the prospect of a whole new look and the latest in functionality,” he added.

The move is expected to be complete by November 1, 2003. Bob Edge with Cushman-Wakefield served as leasing agent.

Haynes and Boone’s downtown office specializes in a broad spectrum of corporate transaction and litigation services focused on the needs of Austin’s business community, such as bioscience and medical technology, intellectual property, environmental, banking and finance, business litigation, labor and employment, business reorganization and bankruptcy, corporate securities, health care, mergers and acquisitions, venture capital, international, investment funds, media law and corporate policyholder insurance coverage.
