Our Client’s Prominence

Dykema, a leading national law firm, delivers an array of legal services to Fortune 1000, middle-market and emerging companies worldwide. The firm engaged Partners by Design for an expansion and update/re-branding of its largest office, located at 10 South Wacker Drive in downtown Chicago.

The Solution

The Partners team worked with the firm’s principals, agreeing to an approach that would replace dark elements installed fifteen years ago with lighter, brighter features and finishes. The program incorporated four floors—two and a half floors of existing space, plus an additional one and a half floors. Solutions generated from a conceptual meeting with Dykema’s marketing department included:

  • Sophisticated new finishes, including white marble, dark wood, and patterned glass
  • Space reconfigurations for greater efficiencies and improved workflows
  • Accommodation of private offices and expanded conference rooms within the added space
  • Enhanced lighting and improved signage

The result was to bring Dykema’s space up to par with its peers and its corporate clientele, while supporting the firm’s longstanding reputation as a successful firm continually expanding its diverse client base.
