Southeast Financial Center, Florida’s tallest and largest office tower and plaza totaling 1.225 million square feet in the heart of Miami’s Central Business District, announced today that the building is now home to twelve national law firms.
Marking its expansion into theMiami market, McDonald Hopkins LLC, a business advisory and advocacy law firm with an 80-year history, recently signed a long-term lease at Southeast Financial Center.
The firm, which defied the economic downturn by increasing revenues 46 percent since 2006, recognizes Miami as a strategic business market. With projected growth in mind, McDonald Hopkins is initially occupying 3,900 square feet at the prestigious tower, which will accommodate expansions.
“Miami’s appeal to national tenants, including new to market McDonald Hopkins, speaks volumes to our strength and growth as a city,” said Donald Cartwright, Senior Vice President with Jones Lang LaSalle. Mr. Cartwright along with Jones Lang LaSalle Vice President Nicole Vassilaros are the exclusive leasing agents for Southeast Financial Center.
The most significant leased tower in the state of Florida with approximately one million square feet under occupancy, the twelve national law firms now residing in Southeast Financial Center occupy more than ¼ of the building, or over 300,000 SF.
McDonald Hopkins’ comprehensive legal services are provided by teams of specialized attorneys and professionals in areas such as business law, litigation, business restructuring and bankruptcy, estate planning, government affairs, healthcare, intellectual property, labor and employment, and mergers and acquisitions. Service and industry specialties are designed to meet the growing challenges that clients face in an increasingly competitive environment.
