Quarles & Brady is a prestigious law firm with 11 locations nationwide, including 300 N LaSalle, part of Irvine Company’s Chicago Collection. With a roster of international clients including MillerCoors and Harley-Davidson, Quarles & Brady has garnered global recognition across many of its practice areas. Contributing to their success has been a strong belief in the importance of working with clients, as evidenced in the opening statement on the Quarles & Brady website, “We don’t just counsel, but invest in the success of each client, partnering with them to achieve their business goals.”
Scott Watson, Chicago Office Administrator, exemplifies the Quarles & Brady ethos through his own commitment to building authentic relationships that require seeing the firm’s clients as more than just businesses, but as people.
Since transitioning into an internal management role in the Chicago office, Watson continues to practice this people-centric philosophy by focusing on the Quarles & Brady staff. As one of 300 N LaSalle’s original customers, Watson believes the building has played a pivotal role in Quarles & Brady’s steady growth. He explains, “With its elegant and sleek design, the building is an exciting place for our office’s 190 people. Not only are the views spectacular from virtually every angle within our offices, but the service on all fronts is exceptional. All of us look forward to starting our day with a warm greeting from Tom, the building’s doorman, and appreciate the constant improvements to the amenity spaces that keep the building as fresh and desirable as it was the day we moved in. And with a property management team that handles every detail and request, we couldn’t be happier with the experience of calling 300 N LaSalle our Chicago home.”
With a shared commitment to investing in and nurturing relationships, Irvine Company establishes strong commonality with customers like Quarles & Brady. We also align around the importance of the space where we work and how it contributes to our productivity, success and overall image. Watson says, “Beyond the building’s incredible design, fantastic amenities and ideal location, 300 N LaSalle has been a critical weapon in our arsenal for conveying our firm’s reputation within Chicago’s elite community of law practices.”
Watson reflects, “For a company whose culture is grounded in everyone doing their best so we can provide the best for our clients, officing at 300 N LaSalle, with its unparalleled working environment, allows us to deliver on that promise.”
