Rawle & Henderson moves to new Wilmington office
WILMINGTON – Rawle & Henderson LLP, a Philadelphia-based law firm, moved to a new office in the Forty Acre neighborhood of north Wilmington.
“Rawle & Henderson’s new office space at 3 Mill Road which is still within the city of Wilmington but in a beautiful area near Rockford Park on the Brandywine. It provides the perfect place for Rawle to welcome their clients and to grow their legal representation of clients in the State of Delaware,” Joelle Florax, Rawle & Henderson partner, told Delaware Business Times.
Rawle & Henderson, the nation’s oldest law firm, established its new Delaware office at 3 Mill Road, which is also home to the headquarters of laboratory software giant LabWare. The office will accommodate two full-time attorneys, a paralegal, and an administrative assistant.
“While our space is small, we have room to grow and the hope is to build up and grow our Delaware office and the work that Rawle & Henderson does in Delaware,” Florax said.
After their prior lease expired at WSFS Bank Center in downtown Wilmington, Rawl & Henderson said the move to a new office space better suits the firm’s evolving needs and offers convenience and accessibility, including free parking for employees and clients.
“The goal and purpose of our new Wilmington office is to allow us to be in a better position to represent the interests of our clients while at the same time providing our attorneys, paralegals and staff with a work environment well-suited to allow them to succeed, and to facilitate our anticipated growth and historical commitment to both Delaware and its surrounding areas,” Florax said.
The law firm partnered with commercial real estate broker Cushman & Wakefield to find the space, and coordinated office renovations with the building management general contractor.
Since 2002, Rawle & Henderson has been practicing civil defense litigation in Wilmington, focusing on areas such as environmental issues, mass and toxic torts, medical professional liability, casualty and premises liability, property damage, construction accidents, and product liability claims.
Rawle & Henderson has 10 offices in Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia and 180 employees.
