Lathrop GPM Relocates Chicago Office to Renovated Hybrid Workspace


CHICAGO (November 02, 2023) – Lathrop GPM is pleased to announce the firm’s Chicago office will relocate at 155 North Wacker in summer 2024.

Currently located on the 30th floor of 155 North Wacker, the firm’s Chicago office will move to a completely renovated space on the building’s 38th floor. The new layout and design will support the office’s continued growth and hybrid working needs.

"We’re pleased to have found a new space that meets the evolving needs of both our clients and our team, while remaining in a premier downtown location on the Chicago River with ideal proximity to our clients, key destinations throughout the city, and transportation," said Bryan Minier, Partner in Charge of Lathrop GPM’s Chicago office. "This move is an investment in the growth of our Chicago office and the new working models that enable flexibility, collaboration, and client service." 

Chicago is the fourth of the firm’s offices to be transformed into a more modern workspace. The firm opened its new Denver office in September 2022 and its new Minneapolis office earlier this month, and St. Louis recently announced its move, scheduled for summer of 2024. Features of the newly designed space in Chicago include a mix of open seating and private assigned workspaces and a separate state-of-the-art conference area with private access for clients and other guests.

"I am thrilled to add the Chicago office to our roster of innovative redesigned office spaces, and make this announcement on the heels of the opening of our incredible new space in Minneapolis, which already has received an excellent response from our team and clients," said Chicago-based Courtney Landon, Lathrop GPM’s Chief Operating Officer. "As our real estate needs have evolved over the years, we’ve embraced the opportunity to reimagine how our offices should look, feel, and function to support firm culture and enhance the already stellar service we provide our clients."

Opened in 2009, Lathrop GPM’s Chicago office’s growth has accelerated over the past two years. In 2023, the firm has welcomed numerous lawyers and business professionals to the office across multiple practice areas, including corporate and business transactions, intellectual property (IP), IP litigation, franchise, and financial services. The Chicago office has grown to house Lathrop GPM’s second-largest number of IP-focused attorneys and professionals.
