Morrison & Foerster to lease new quarters in Aon Center


Law firm Morrison & Foerster will move to Aon Center after signing one of the largest leases of the year in downtown Los Angeles.

Morrison & Foerster has agreed to rent 77,300 square feet in the skyscraper at 707 Wilshire Blvd. between Flower and Hope streets, real estate brokerage Jones Lang LaSalle said.

Financial terms of 15-year agreement were not revealed, but landlord Beacon Capital Partners asks for about $1.87 per square foot per month in rent, according to real estate data provider CoStar.


The law firm is expected to move about 200 workers from Gas Company Tower to Aon Center in December, CoStar said. The 62-story Aon building was completed in 1973.

San Francisco-based Morrison & Foerster is one of the biggest law firms in the state.
