Major law firm is the latest to move from Pasadena to Glendale

A law firm recognized for its work on patent and trademark issues plans to move into Glendale by mid-December, according to city officials.

Christie, Parker & Hale has signed a lease at 655 Central Ave.  and will move its 120 employees -- 45 of whom are attorneys -- from its offices in Pasadena, the city announced Tuesday.

Zecco, an online stocks and equity trading company, also recently brought 100 employees from Pasadena to 500 N. Brand Blvd.

The firm represents some of the world's largest companies, including Verizon, Raytheon Co., Guess, the Neiman Marcus Group and Samsung.

The firm currently operates on five floors in space designed more than 15 years ago, according to Byron Hibdon, executive director of Christie, Parker & Hale.  In its new 42,000-square-foot office space, all personnel will work on two floors, according to a statement.

Christie, Park & Hale is the latest in a succession of companies that have moved into Glendale.
In January, LegalZoom moved its headquarters and 375 employees to 101 N. Brand Blvd. Technicolor will open its new film processing  center this month at 1763 Thompson Ave., relocating about 100 employees from North Hollywood.
