DALLAS-In a quietly orchestrated move, the three-year-old Shackelford, Melton & McKinley law firm has relocated to a class A mid-rise in Uptown. Sources say the firm’s partners made the move with a 12-year lease in hand.

The boutique firm moved to 3333 Lee Parkway over the weekend, exiting the McFarlan Building at 10100 N. Central Expressway to get more room and become the second largest tenant in the 233,543-sf mid-rise, owned by Fort Worth-based Crescent Real Estate Equities Co. Shackelford, Melton & McKinley leased all of the 10th floor, part of the fifth and 3,000 sf of street-level space. As part of the pact, the law firm got expansion rights for the fifth floor in a deal pulled together by its broker, John Amend with the Amend Group, who also occupies space in the Uptown building, and Crescent’s leasing team of Michael Lewis, senior vice president, and Tony Click, vice president.

The law firm took over space given back awhile ago by WebLink Wireless Inc. With the law firm now firmly seated, the 12-story building is 68% leased to 32 tenants, setting up a dealmaking scenario for space with a quoted rate of $20 per sf plus electric. Financial firm Gainsco Inc. is the lead tenant with 40,000 sf.

The 25-member firm has earmarked the first-floor space, within eyeshot of the sidewalk, for a fee attorney’s office to handle closings. The space planning has put the litigation and real estate groups on the 10th floor and the transactional team on the fifth.
