Blank Rome Names New Chairman as Co-Chairman Retires
Hoffman said research has shown that most firms currently have about 1,100 square feet per lawyer but are trending toward reducing that number to around 700 or 800 square feet.
"I don't think that's any different than what's happening at accounting firms and other professional services organizations," Hoffman said.
But none of that is to say the firm is no longer interested in growing.
Hoffman said the firm is particularly focused on growing its Washington, D.C., and New York offices, but is not opposed to entering new markets both domestically and internationally.
However, there are no specific plans to do so at this time, according to Hoffman.
"We will continue to look for geographic markets in which we can better serve our clients," Hoffman said.
