Burr & Forman LLP has officially completed the renovation of its Birmingham office located on the top six floors of the soon to be Shipt Tower downtown. Burr & Forman renewed its lease for 104,514 square feet of office space last year, reaffirming the law firm’s commitment to downtown Birmingham. The renovation provides a modern, enhanced work environment for its attorneys and staff. The AmLaw 200 law firm first opened its doors in the Magic City in 1905 and now has over 130 attorneys in Birmingham. The firm celebrated its unveiling by hosting an Open House on March 5th.
“We are excited to now have a dynamic working environment for our employees and clients,” said Ed Christian, chief executive officer at Burr & Forman. “This new office gives us the opportunity to collaborate among teams, engage with our clients and host events for our community. Downtown Birmingham is undergoing significant revitalization, and Burr & Forman is proud to be at the heart of it, providing legal services to the businesses and organizations that drive this city and the Southeast.”
The updated space features a top-floor reception and meeting area with added pre-function space and a catering kitchen in order to better host events for clients and local organizations. In addition, employees were also at the center of the design concept, with an enhanced two-story new employee breakroom, providing a loft area with alternative workspace options.
Burr’s enhanced modern office is equipped with the latest green efficiencies and state-of-the-art technology and video capabilities, allowing better communication with the firm’s clients and across Burr & Forman’s 19 offices. The architecture firm of Cohen Carnaggio Reynolds (CCR) are responsible for the new design – a sleek and clean style, complete with maximum usage of natural light, white marble, abstract art and minimalistic furniture.
The office is located 420 20th Street North.
