Downtown Dallas lawfirm Perkins Coie is moving its offices.

The firm is expanding its Dallas operation with a larger workspace in downtown’s Ross Tower, formerly Lincoln Plaza.

Perkins Coie is currently located a few blocks away in Trammell Crow Center.

“Our Dallas office grew steadily last year and we expect to continue adding attorneys and staff this year,” managing partner Steve Smith said. “Ross Tower is a premier building that offered all of the services and features we needed, as well as the ability to grow with us as we expand.”

CBRE Group’s Phil Puckett negotiated the 36,175-square-foot new office lease with Mike Silliman of PegasusAblon.

The 45-story Ross Tower on Akard Street is owned by the California State Teachers Retirement System and operated by by Lionstone Group of Houston and Dallas’ PegasusAblon.

Seattle-based Perkins Coie has offices in more than a dozen U.S. cities.
