Global law firm consolidating DFW offices into new Richardson hub

One of the largest corporate immigration law firms in the world plans to consolidate its North Texas offices in Uptown Dallas and Richardson to create a new regional hub — which, in the next few years, will be its largest office.

With the consolidation, San Francisco-based Berry Appleman & Leiden LLP (BAL) plans to bring more than 185 attorneys, paralegals and staff into one office spanning three floors totaling 61,380 square feet in Building A at the former Verizon campus at 2400 N. Glenville in Richardson. It would be the largest of the firm’s 18 global offices.

The West Coast law firm underwent an extensive real estate search of U.S. cities before the firm’s partners selected Richardson for its regional hub based on the city’s proximity to tech firms and a global workforce.
