The law firm is filling all but 3,000 sf of the 20th floor ofthe 40-story office building at 801 Cherry St. in the CBD. Thetenant's broker, Rick Hopwood of NAI Huff Partners, tellsGlobeSt.com that the new deal has replaced one that was set toexpire in April 2009, with the finished contract including ratebumps and a right of first refusal on the floor's remainingspace.

Hopwood says the deal took three months to seal, including anevaluation of other Downtown options. "They really like thebuilding and where they are," he says, "so they decided to make adeal at Burnett Plaza. The building's owner was helpful in makingthis work those guys. Both parties should be applauded for workingtogether."
