Jones Walker Relocates Baton Rouge Office to Downtown
July 24, 2018
BATON ROUGE, July 24, 2018 – Jones Walker LLP announced today that the firm’s Baton Rouge office will relocate to downtown in late 2019.  
 
Speaking about the firm’s decision to relocate, Brandon K. Black, Office Head of the Jones Walker’s Baton Rouge office, said, “The firm is pleased to make the move to downtown Baton Rouge, the city’s center for business and government. After careful consideration, we made the decision to move to the City Plaza I tower. We will completely renovate the top two floors and a portion of another. We expect to move in late 2019.” 
 
Jones Walker worked with Baton Rouge based real estate development and property management firm, Wampold Companies, to secure the new office space located at 445 North Boulevard, Baton Rouge, LA 70802. Members of CBRE’s Advisory and Transaction Services Group, Ryan Roth, Paul Penland, Charles Gordon and Brandon Clark, represented Jones Walker in the transaction with Wampold. The new office space allows the firm to be closer to clients’ offices as well as be near state and federal courts and government offices. The decision to move also demonstrates the firm’s support for the growing and thriving downtown Baton Rouge. 
 
Leading architectural firm GraceHebert will complete a total renovation of the space into a modern work environment to accommodate the law firm’s team of more than 90 attorneys and staff. 
 
“This is a great move to be closer and better connected to the downtown organizations, events, and attractions that the firm supports,” Black said. “After nearly 40 years in our current space, we are excited to begin a new chapter.”
