IRVINE, CA-The law firm of Jackson, DeMarco, Tidus, Petersen and Peckenpaugh has restructured and extended the lease on its headquarters at 2030 Main St., according to Studley. The law firm, which formerly occupied 34,358 sf in the building on a lease that began in 2002, has expanded to 50,773 sf and extended its lease by nine years.

Jackson DeMarco was represented by Studley’s Royce Sharf, branch manager and executive vice president; Bruce Schuman, senior vice president, and Mike Props, managing director, all from Studley’s Orange County office. Sharf and Props represented the firm on its original lease at the same location in 2002.

The law firm recently added 12 attorneys when it expanded its complex litigation practice, according to Sharf. “Maintaining the firm’s ability to remain flexible and align its real estate occupancy needs with the business plan has been of paramount importance,” he adds.

The Studley brokers tell that Jackson DeMarco wanted to restructure its lease because the firm continues to grow and needed to lock down future expansion space. The deal allows the firm to grow in stages over the next couple years.

Terms of the new lease were not disclosed. Asking rates for space in the 2030 Main St. building, a 16-story tower of nearly 347,000 sf that was built in 1990, are $3.30 per sf per month.

The building’s owner, the State Teachers Retirement Board of Ohio, was represented by CBRE’s John Weiner in the new lease with Jackson DeMarco. The law firm also maintains an office in Westlake village.
