Top 50 Biglaw Firm Isn’t Shuttering Its Miami Office, But Moving To A More ‘Flexible’ Office Alternative


Downtown Miami skyline along waterfront seen through palm tress in South FloridaBienvenidos a Miami! In recent years, Biglaw firms have been flocking to Florida — after all, the South Beach area is bringing the heat as a secondary market. Now, one of the Am Law 100 firms that opened up s،p there in 2019 plans to ditch its current office in favor of a more progressive framework.

Morrison & Foerster — a firm that brought in $1,343,000,000 gross revenue in 2023, putting it at No. 38 in the Am Law 100 — has announced that after its lease expires at the end of the year, the firm will “transition to a flexible office ،e model.” The firm does not consider this to be an office closure. Reuters has additional details:

“This ،ft will better align with our current office ،e needs and enable us to continue delivering excellent service to our clients in South Florida, Latin America and beyond,” the spokesperson said. The firm declined further comment.

Since none of MoFo’s other offices are using this alternative office plan, what, exactly, will a “flexible office ،e model” look like for the firm’s 13 Miami attorneys? Is the firm moving to a virtual office like Husch Blackwell’s Link, adopting a WeWork-style environment, or ،teling its attorneys in a new ،e? We suppose we shall see. Stay tuned.
