Jackson Walker has signed a lease to occupy the Jefferson Bank building currently under construction along the 1900 block of Broadway between East Josephine and East Grayson streets. The law firm plans to occupy space on multiple floors within the building, with the 12th floor serving as the main reception area. The move to the new office space is planned for spring of 2023.
“We couldn’t have asked for a more compatible co-tenant and are excited for what the future holds,” said Paul E. McSween, III, Jefferson Bank President.
Julia W. Mann, managing partner of the Jackson Walker San Antonio office, commented, “This is a thrilling move for our office. We are continuing to grow just as the city is, and we look forward to being part of the emerging business district near the Pearl. This move will provide easy access for our clients and room for our expanding team.” Mann noted that the new space with its rectangular shape and floor to ceiling windows will allow the law firm to design a more efficient and inviting work space while maintaining dedicated individual offices. The local office of JLL, a leading worldwide professional services firm specializing in real estate and investment management, represented Jackson Walker in its property search.
