Winchester Law Firm Inks Lease at Triad Centre
By Amos Maki
The Winchester Law Firm is moving to a new space within the Triad Centre II office building in East Memphis with a new buildout.
The law firm will occupy 5,523 square feet in the Highwoods Properties office building at 6060 Poplar Ave.
Rick Charlton, managing partner with the Winchester Law Firm, said the Triad Centre II building, on Poplar near Interstate 240 in the heart of East Memphis, has proved an ideal location for the firm’s attorneys and clients.
The location, along with the law firm’s long-term relationship with Highwoods, solidified the deal.
“The Winchester Law Firm began its tenancy at 6060 Poplar in 1992 when we combined our Downtown office and our East Memphis office in one location,” Charlton said. “This address has proven convenient for our attorneys and clients – regardless of their location in the Memphis metropolitan area or when coming from elsewhere, and regardless of whether the matter involved commercial transactions, real estate, litigation, estates, government or otherwise.
“We appreciate the cooperation and support that Highwoods has given us over the years and look forward to continuing a good relationship.”
Kemp Conrad and Matt Weathersby, principals with Commercial Advisors/Cushman & Wakefield, represented the law firm, while John Mercer represented Highwoods.
Conrad said everybody involved in the transaction worked hard to find a creative solution that allowed the Winchester Law Firm to maintain its prime location.
“We were honored to arrange a solution that allowed the Winchester Law Firm to stay in a Class A building in new space by flipping across the hall, as opposed to a rolling renovation of their current space,” Conrad said. “Highwoods, as usual, was very creative and accommodating in working with us in assisting a 20-plus-year customer in meeting their needs.”
