On Wednesday, May 9, Shutts & Bowen Chief Operating Officer Frederick B. O’Malley participated as a panelist in a law firm forum organized by CBRE. The event brought together local and national leaders to discuss how workplace strategy trends will transform law firm culture, profitability, and talent retention.
Representatives from several firms discussed how their real estate is evolving, including office size and conference areas.
Fred discussed how Shutts considered a universal office size but ultimately decided on two sizes – one for partners and one for associates. He also discussed how the firm decreased the space per attorney and repurposed the remaining square footage as conference and multipurpose space when it moved to the Southeast Financial Center from the Miami Center in 2015.
