Law Firms

As your Detroit law firm’s real estate partner, we’ll secure the most economical, functional and efficient real estate deal that reflects your culture and image.

Detroit's CBD has recently seen a sharp decline in available space, as more large corporations relocate or expand their operations back downtown.

Existing office towers are seeing upgrades, and landlords are boosting rents, tightening core market fundamentals. We expect Detroit to be landlord-favorable starting in 2017.

However, a growing shift towards the urban market from suburban locations has opened up opportunities for your firm to find premium office space in the suburbs at a discount, should that be a viable option. Additionally, Class B office space remains available, and at an 18 percent discount (as of Q3 2015).

JLL's Detroit law firm team is here to help you and your firm tackle a variety of market-centric issues.

  • Attract and retain attorneys, and encourage collaboration among them
  • Grow your business without taking on unnecessary overhead
  • Improve space efficiency and reduce operating costs
  • Plan strategically for mergers or acquisitions
