CHICAGO— Jan. 25, 2016 — Akerman LLP, a top 100 U.S. law firm serving clients across the Americas, announced today that it plans to more than double the size of its Chicago office to accommodate the firm’s rapid growth in the region.

The expansion includes the entire 47th and 48th floors, the top floors of 71 South Wacker. Renovation of the floors is set to begin by the fourth quarter of 2017, with a move-in timeframe of early 2018. Jones Lang LaSalle helped Akerman broker the deal.
