Seyfarth Shaw Moves to New Sydney Office


Seyfarth Shaw LLP has announced that its Sydney office has moved to a new location at:

Level 40,
Governor Phillip Tower
1 Farrer Place,
Sydney NSW 2000

Governor Phillip Tower is an ideal corporate location in the heart of Sydney’s financial district with unparalleled harbor views, a rich history and sophisticated design. The firm signed a seven year lease on level 40 with a total area of around 8,600 square feet.

Due to the firm’s rapid growth in Australia, a new and larger space was needed for the growing team. As part of the search, many buildings were considered but the option of a long-term lease, excellent connectivity and a flexible floor plate were behind the move to Governor Phillip Tower. Seyfarth collaborated with Outkast on the design and layout to create an environment that has been specifically designed to foster collaboration, integration and creativity. The building was designed by award winning architects, Denton Corker Marshall.

Australian managing partner, Darren Perry said that the need to move came about as a result of the very positive response of clients to the firm’s offering to Australian and international corporations, which is focused on employment, industrial relations and workplace safety law.

“Our continued growth, including the recent addition of our workplace safety team, has made it necessary for us to say goodbye to our first home in Chifley Tower and take a long term lease in a location with more space. We are excited about continuing to work with our clients in the new environment we have created at Governor Phillip Tower.”

All other contact details remain unchanged.
