It's been six months since New York-based law firm Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman said it planned to open a professional services center in Nashville.
The location of the back-office site was still in flux at the time , and not much has been heard about the firm's search for a home since. But a day after Asurion announced it would take the entire Ragland Building off the market , sources have given NashvillePost.com a little more clarity as to Pillsbury’s leasing intentions.
What is now known is that Pillsbury Winthrop is negotiating with a tenant in the AT&T Building downtown. It is not known at this point who the sublessor is, nor is it apparent just how many square feet Pillsbury wants to house its 150-person staff.
According to Pillsbury’s website, the firm plans to begin transferring and recruiting employees this spring and expects the center to be operational by fall. Tom Resau, the firm's senior public relations manager, told NashvillePost.com via email that the firm cannot comment on the “few sites I believe media have mentioned.”
“We’re in a selection process that's still ongoing and will keep you posted on developments that we can confirm,” Resau wrote.
