Jaffe Raitt Heuer & Weiss to Relocate Detroit Office
The 18-story, 180,000-square-foot Grand Park Centre building was built in 1922, and was originally constructed as the world headquarters for Stroh’s Brewing Company.
Southfield-based Jaffe Raitt Heuer & Weiss PC announced today the law firm is relocating its existing Downtown Detroit office to a new location in the historic Grand Park Centre building and will be adding new attorneys.
“Our clients are more active in Detroit than ever before and this new office will allow us to provide them with the highest level of support and service,” says William Sider, CEO of the firm. "Our relocated office will not only provide those clients with better and more efficient access to our services, it will better position Jaffe for the rapid development we see in the medical, technology, IP, manufacturing and entrepreneurial start-up areas."
Sider would not say specifically how many new attorneys would be added to the new office.
Sider expects to move from its current office in the Guardian Building to its new space in Grand Park Centre in February. The Grand Park Centre building is located near Grand Circus Park and a short walk from Comerica Park, Ford Field and the Detroit Red Wings new arena and entertainment district.
“The firm was founded in Detroit in 1968 and we are still very much rooted in the city,” says founding partner Ira Jaffe. “The energy in Detroit today mirrors the entrepreneurial spirit that has driven our firm’s growth for the last 47 years. Our new office will reflect that spirit and our commitment to supporting both the needs of our clients and the greater community.”
"We look forward to working with our clients from our new Detroit office, as well as our existing locations in Southfield, Ann Arbor, and Naples, (Fla.).”
