One of Richmond’s biggest law firms now calls Rocketts Landing home.
BrownGreer and about 330 of its employees last week moved into the 38,000-square-foot Cedar Works building at 250 Rocketts Way.
The law firm bought the three-story building April 1 from an entity affiliated with Rocketts developers WVS Companies. It paid $6.32 million for the fully developed building, according to Henrico County records.
“We’re real happy about it,” said Orran Brown, founding partner of the firm. “Our people seem to like working here, it feels good that it’s our own and we love the way it looks.”
J.D. Lewis Construction Management Inc. was the general contractor, and H&A Architects & Engineers was the architect on the project.
BrownGreer has ballooned to 1,700 employees, Brown said, as it continues to process billions of dollars in claims related to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
“This is pretty large for us,” he said. “But we think eventually the core of our company will fit in the headquarters. But we love doing big projects. We’re not going to turn down any work.”
