BOCA RATON, FL – The law firm of Weiss Serota Helfman Cole & Bierman is expanding in Boca Raton. The 30-year-old business and government law firm has signed a long-term lease for 12,138 square feet at One Boca Place, a 277,390-square-foot, Class A building on Glades Road near I-95.
The new lease will more than double the size of the firm’s Boca Raton office, setting the foundation for continued growth of staff, attorneys, and practice lines in Palm Beach County.
Butters Realty & Management office team of Caroline Fleischer, Darcie Lunsford and Sky Butters represented Weiss Serota in the lease transaction. Laurel Oswald of Tower Commercial Real Estate represented landlord, CP Group.
“While many companies were shedding real estate and recalibrating staffing levels in the face of the pandemic, Weiss Serota seized the counter-cyclical opportunity to grow, turning uncertainty to its negotiating advantage,” said Butter’s Fleischer, who is executive vice president of occupier services. “One Boca Place, fresh off the heels off a multimillion renovation, offered the firm both the prestige and the physical infrastructure needed to meet its growth trajectory.”
Weiss Serota originally established a Boca Raton office in January 2017, with just five Palm Beach County-based attorneys there at the time. Since then, the firm has more than tripled the size of its team and anticipates having at least 17 attorneys working out of One Boca Place when it moves into the space in spring 2022. The new office gives the firm additional space to continue its expansion in Palm Beach County.
Notable recent additions to the firm’s Boca Raton office include The DuBosar Law Group, led by accomplished litigator Howard D. DuBosar, veteran construction attorney Ronald S. Nisonson and veteran municipal and real estate attorney David N. Tolces.
“Our Boca Raton office has proven to be a catalyst for growth for the entire firm, particularly with our private sector practice areas,” said Brett J. Schneider, Partner and Boca Raton Office Managing Director. “There is tremendous activity and expansion occurring throughout Palm Beach County. We believe our continued growth and new space will help us better serve this growing business community while also provided our employees with a vibrant and highly desirable place to work near where many of them live.”
