Vinson & Elkins Builds on its Long-standing Commitment to Austin and Plans Relocation to Indeed Tower
Vinson & Elkins (V&E) announced today it will relocate its Austin office to Indeed Tower, located at 200 West Sixth Street in Downtown Austin. V&E’s lease includes 50,273 rentable square feet, occupying the entire 25th floor and a portion of 26th floor at the tower. Indeed Tower is being developed by Trammell Crow Company (TCC), one of the nation’s largest commercial real estate developers and investors, and its joint venture partner, Principal Real Estate Investors. The building is scheduled to be complete early this summer.
“Vinson & Elkins has been serving clients in Austin for more than 40 years. We have long embraced the city’s entrepreneurial spirit and vast potential to become one of the nation’s leading business hubs,” said Milam Newby, co-managing partner of V&E’s Austin office. “Today, we work alongside many of Austin’s most thriving industries, including technology, life sciences, private equity, venture capital and renewable energy. Our commitment to this city remains unwavering, and we look forward to building our brand in such a dynamic and energetic location.”
“We are proud that for more than 100 years, Vinson & Elkins has been the law firm of choice in Texas providing consistent, high-quality legal services to some of the most important sectors of the global economy,” said V&E chairman Mark Kelly. “Moving into Indeed Tower will place the firm at the center of an incredibly vibrant city and help us play a key part in Austin’s continued growth and prominence as one of the country’s most innovative cities.”
In particular, V&E’s Austin office helps provide strategic counsel to leading entrepreneurs and innovators in some of the fastest-growing sectors of the economy in all phases of growth, from startup and venture financing, to acquisitions and public offerings, as well as on intellectual property and other bet-the-company litigation. Intersecting the firm’s broad experience in energy and technology, V&E’s Renewable and Sustainable Energy and Infrastructure practice is expanding in Austin and serves clients in the region and globally.
More broadly, V&E’s Austin-based lawyers represent key firm practice groups, including Mergers & Acquisitions, Private Equity, Venture Capital, Litigation, Intellectual Property, Environmental, White Collar, Appellate and Real Estate.
“Situated on 6th Street in Austin’s booming central business district, Indeed Tower will offer tenants an unmatched experience through extensive amenities, both inside of the building and through surrounding pedestrian-oriented retail and greenspace,” said Brad Maples, Principal of TCC Austin. “In line with our goals for this project, Vinson & Elkins has shown a longstanding dedication to Austin’s growth. We are thrilled to welcome the firm as our newest tenant later this year.”
