Nelson Hardiman, LLP, the second-largest healthcare and life sciences law firm in California, has relocated its offices to 1100 Glendon in the Westwood area of Los Angeles, California. The firm is leasing two full floors and over 40,000 square feet in a premier location. The firm’s move was sparked by the law firm’s rapid growth in recent years to nearly 50 people, including 26 attorneys.
“Our move to doubling our office space was the next milestone in our business growth strategy,” said managing partner Harry Nelson. “Our firm is blessed with an increase in work, resulting from the continuing evolution of U.S. healthcare. In addition, we’re proud of becoming an ‘in-demand’ place for healthcare lawyers to work.” In the past year alone, Vault ranked Nelson Hardiman as the #1 firm (under 150 lawyers) nationwide for firm culture, and #2 on its Best Law Firms to Work For list. The Los Angeles Business Journal also ranked Nelson Hardiman #10 on its 2018 survey of Best Places to Work in Los Angeles the firm’s second year in a row on the list. According to Nelson, the firm is seriously exploring the opening of a Northern California office as well as moving forward on plans for an office in Orange County in the near future.
In expanding its headquarters in Los Angeles with more than triple its current office footprint, the move supports the firm’s growth strategy by providing multiple larger presentation spaces for Nelson Hardiman’s frequent calendar of educational and networking events for the healthcare and life sciences community. “We have become a crossroads of all things healthcare in Los Angeles,” commented Nelson.
The move was also precipitated by the expanding needs of several organizations that have grown out of the firm’s industry leadership over the past decade. 1100 Glendon will also be home to a number of other healthcare and life sciences organizations including the marijuana compliance consulting group MMLG, healthcare compliance consulting group Compliagent, and the education and advocacy organization Behavioral Health Association of Providers (BHAP). In addition, healthcare M&A advisory group Keval Health will be a subtenant at 1100 Glendon.
With extensive collaborative spaces, event space, wellness rooms, full kitchens, and other amenities, Nelson Hardiman expects the new space to facilitate its continued growth. Nelson points out that “The new space is emblematic of our culture of collaboration, and our commitment to excellence. We are looking forward to sharing it with our clients, our colleagues, and the community as we continue to innovate in ways that improve healthcare and exceed client expectations.”
