The latest Lehigh Valley law firm has made the move to downtown Allentown.
Fitzpatrick Lentz & Bubba officially moved into its new 20,000-square-foot offices in Suite 800 on the eighth floor of Two City Center.
The firm had been headquartered in a former school house building off of route 309 in Center Valley, but it had outgrown the space, leading the firm to lease space in an adjacent building for its back office operations. Now, all 75 staffers are under one roof.
Partner Joseph Bubba said relocating the downtown is also helping the firm with its recruitment efforts, especially with younger professionals who are seeking a more urban environment.
“Our ranks of young attorneys and young staff members is growing exponentially,” Bubba said. “The downtown Allentown office gives them the opportunity to live in place, work in place and play in place.”
He said a good number of the law firm’s clients have also been relocating into the downtown and so the new office makes them more convenient.
He said, like many of the firms that have relocated to the downtown in recent years, Fitzpatrick Lentz & Bubba was also eager to get involved in the urban revitalization going on there.
“We think Allentown is critical to the Lehigh Valley,” he said.
FLB will continue to maintain office space in Center Valley and Easton for the convenience of certain clients, but those will not be staffed full time.
