Akin Gump, a top-tier global law firm with five offices across Texas, are the newest tenants of San Antonio’s Weston Centre. With their former San Antonio location just down the road, the decision to remain in downtown San Antonio was an easy one.
“We chose to remain downtown and move to the Weston Centre for ease of access to the court system, major clients, and all the vibrancy that downtown has to offer,” Akin Gump San Antonio partner in charge Kirt O’Neill said. “Weston Centre is the premier office property downtown.”
The San Antonio office of Akin Gump now calls 7,347 square feet of Weston Centre’s 10th floor home. It adopted a modern, open office environment with lots of glass and natural light to facilitate collaboration among lawyers, clients and staff, and to promote overall camaraderie and well-being. In addition to the exercise facilities and onsite eateries, Weston Centre had plenty to offer the San Antonio office of one of the world’s largest legal firms.
“The top selling points when considering Weston Centre were the location, quality of construction and finish-out, and proximity to other professionals,” O’Neill said.
Weston Centre is no stranger to leaders of industry walking its halls. With the likes of Coca-Cola and BBVA Compass calling the modern skyscraper home, Akin Gump find themselves in good company.
“We are privileged to have such a well-respected firm join our tenant roster,” Weston Centre president Mona Mitchell said. “Akin Gump will enjoy the friendly atmosphere at Weston Centre, where we are constantly striving to improve the tenant experience. I hope to learn much from them.”
