Cleveland office of Fisher Phillips to relocate downtown

Attorneys and staff in the Cleveland office of the management-side labor and employment law firm Fisher Phillips are preparing to relocate to downtown Cleveland.

In mid-December the office’s 39 employees will begin the move from 9150 S. Hills Blvd. to their new location on the 40th floor of 200 Public Square, which is currently being renovated.

Regional managing partner Steve Nobil said the move would allow the firm to continue to grow the Cleveland office, while providing key features that will enable attorneys to improve client service.

“The new facility will provide incredible data security, workplace privacy and the ability to continue our ‘less-paper initiative’ by storing closed-case materials on secure servers instead of file cabinets,” said Nobil.

“The new office building also contains conference rooms, a fitness center, a cafeteria and the new Ruth’s Chris Steak House in the vibrant downtown area, which also offers additional excellent dining choices and easy access to the highway.”

Attorneys and staff are expected to move into the new office space on Dec. 18.

The office will provide almost 17,000 square feet of space, compared with the current 15,000-square-foot location, where the firm’s 21 lawyers and 18 support staff assist clients throughout Ohio and the Midwest.

Nobil said the firm is looking to add lateral partners and seasoned associates to service its ever-growing client base.

The creation of the Cleveland location dates back to April 2011 when the Ohio labor and employment law firm Millisor & Nobil merged with Fisher Phillips, providing the firm with an entryway into the Ohio market.

Today Fisher Phillips has a total of 375 attorneys and 32 offices, including one in Columbus with seven attorneys and five support staff.

The relocation of the Cleveland office coincides with the end of the firm’s lease at South Hills Office Park. The new 10-year lease was signed with real estate investment firm Norfolk, Virginia-based Harbor Group International, which owns the 45-story 200 Public Square. 

“We are excited about the move and the chance it provides to be a part of the growth and revitalization of the city’s downtown renaissance,” said Nobil. “Being located in the heart of Cleveland will allow our attorneys to be more deeply involved in the community and contribute to the vibrant changes transpiring here every day.”
