Pashman Stein, P.C. has announced it has moved its offices to approximately 25,000 square feet of office space at Court Plaza South at 21 Main Street in Hackensack. The firm’s new offices are now located in Suite 200 on the second and third floors of the property. The move represents an expansion of its offices at the Court Plaza property in Hackensack.
“This moves comes at a time when we are growing our practice with the acquisition of new legal talent and the introduction of new practice areas, such as our privacy and information governance practice group,” said Co-Founder and Managing Partner Michael Stein. “We were reluctant to move out of Court Plaza because of its great location across the street from the Bergen County Courthouse, but we needed to move because we simply outgrew our old space. We are very happy that we were able to build out a larger space in the same building.”
Pashman Stein turned its need for more space into an opportunity to completely modernize its offices to accommodate new ways of working that better integrate the technological advances of the last 10 years. Specifically, the space features an open floor plan with wireless network connectivity, as well as collaborative work and meeting spaces where teams of attorneys and staff can work on client matters together. The space’s innovative design features include energy efficient lighting, glass walls and the absence of office doors in some locations to support the open work plan. In addition, the firm moved away from the traditional partner- and associate-sized offices to a design that has uniformly-sized offices for all attorneys. The space also features a board room with state-of-the art video conferencing and a new suite of ergonomic furniture that not only works well with the firm’s technology, but also allows all attorneys to work either seated or standing up.
“Our very modern, newly-designed office space breaks traditional law office design paradigms with partners sitting behind closed doors in offices along the perimeter of the office space. Our goal with the new space was to promote new ways of working together because our approach to serving client needs often requires a multidisciplinary team of experts and professionals. We wanted our space to not only support this way of working but also to reflect the way in which technological advances have transformed the way we work. Our focus on energy efficiency is also very much in keeping with our firm’s values. Quite simply, it’s an energizing place to work.”
