Jenner & Block moved to a new office in Los Angeles, the firm announced Monday.
Managing partner Brandon D. Fox said the change "brings us a renewed focus and it allows us to commit again to our values, which are advocacy, diversity and inclusion, and our pro bono efforts."
The new office is on the 33rd floor of City National Plaza in downtown Los Angeles, home to other major law firms including Jones Day, White & Case, Paul Hastings and Norton Rose Fulbright. The Jenner office had been at the U.S. Bank Tower since 2009.
The 23,000-square-foot space contains 46 attorney offices, all the same size, "which shows that we value associates as much as we value our partners," Fox said. "I moved in today and walked around the office and it's just great to have a fresh set of clothes on."
The move coincided with Fox's return to the firm on Aug. 16 after leaving the U.S. attorney's office. Jenner & Block also opened a San Francisco office in March.
Fox said staff aren't required to come back into the office yet; remote work is voluntary until at least mid-October.
"There has to be a component that there is some physical presence because the culture is so important to us, but we also want to give associates the flexibility to be able to work remotely when it's appropriate," Fox said.
