Austin Office Managing Partner Cynthia Bast was featured and pictured in Law360 discussing Locke Lord’s Austin office relocation to a next-generation building in the heart of downtown, highlighting its state-of-the-art virtual courtroom and convertible collaboration space. She notes the office's slightly smaller footprint has made the staff "more visible to one another."
"We see each other more in the day-to-day, and in the break room," Bast said. "It's creating more interaction among people than we had previously."
Bast, who also serves as Chair of Locke Lord’s Affordable Housing Practice Group, also commented on the Firm’s diversity and strong collegiality: "We have diversity in our practice areas, we have diversity in the universities that we attended, in the law schools we attended and of course in ethnicity, gender and every other aspect that can make an office diverse," she said. "That's part of what makes our culture here special. We're not all the same and we all bring different voices."
