Large Law Firm Move in Downtown LA

Kane Consulting successfully managed a 400 person law firm move in Downtown LA into the California Plaza. Kim Ward served as the move manager and began planning this move in October of 2016. The move occurred over one weekend, allowing the law group to be back at work the following Monday. The liquidation took two weeks to complete, filling 10 trailers. Big thanks to the many vendors that worked on the relocation, it was a massive effort by all!

Real Estate Leasing Tip for the Week

As primarily a tenant leasing representative broker, it is important to clearly qualify “tenants” before spending time showing and negotiating space in order to save both the tenant and broker time.  Tenants need to clarify clearly with the broker what their “wants” and “musts” are for a space.  And most importantly their budget and timing to acquire space.  Brokers should clearly explain the current market conditions with regard to rental rates and availability in the market being searched to their clients.  A mis-communication on either part will waste everyone’s time.  Contact Barbara Kane at barbara@kaneconsulting.net for further tips on negotiating leases.
