Finding the right space is not an easy task. There are so many options. When we set out to lease a space we looked at traditional office space, subleasing space in an established office and we looked at executive suites. The spaces were either too stuffy or they felt like the common area of a dorm room. A stuffy office with shag carpet, dark hardwood furniture, lots of books that no one reads wasn’t for us. We didn’t want a loud open floor plan with a foosball table either. In addition, some spaces looked great but the costs were unreasonable. Other spaces, after close inspection of the terms, nickeled and dimmed us for everything from copies, to pens, to snacks in the office.
It became clear that what we wanted and what we needed was not out there and none of these spaces fit. We needed an open space for collaboration. We wanted a space where lawyers could work together and bounce ideas off of each other. A space that would spur innovation and creativity. We wanted conference and reception areas that conveyed the right message to our clients and made them comfortable. As we met with younger clients we realized they didn’t want to go to a law firm where their grandparents went to.
At Thirty33 Legal Suites we solved all of these problems. The Attorney’s and the Client’s needs and wants are met. Attorneys have a space where they can collaborate and grow their business without all of the hassle of what we went through. We created an open floor plan that offers enough privacy and quiet that you can get your work done, yet it is not stuffy and closed off. We stocked the space with the firm “necessities” of a copier, printer, desk, chair, conference room, etc. The Conference and Reception areas focus on the clients needs. Clients will be feel right at home in our modern reception and conference areas.Thirty33 Legal Suites is the solution to creating a modern firm.
