Market Focus

Legal

The look of a law office says volumes about the firm; about its culture, its success and the extent to which that firm is in sync with its clients.

As the practice of law evolves, firms must reconcile the look and functionality of their space with the realities of technology, cost and workplace trends.

Knoll offers a broad range of solutions that provide a consistent aesthetic throughout a space, from private office to open plan environments, while supporting the team, serving the client, and adapting to the inevitability of continued change.

Partners and Associates

When planning for partners and associates it is critical to provide solutions that accommodate personal preferences yet reflect the overall culture of the firm.

Knoll provides high quality solutions that are distinctive, durable and adaptable. We provide a “kit of parts” approach that allows offices to be easily reconfigured from a single to a double, or even triple as needs change. Our diverse scope of products and finishes enables designers and clients can make aesthetic updates easily as a firm’s needs evolve.

Support Staff

Law firm roles are evolving. Legal secretaries are moving beyond the transaction counter to serve as the administrative hub and departmental liaison. Firms are also increasingly relying on a fluid cast of contract and staff attorneys.

Adaptable furniture delivers planning flexibility as needs and teams change. As the support staff moves out of private offices and into the open plan, high-endurance furniture is ever more critical.

The war for talent is intense. Attractive, comfortable, functional spaces are an important factor in attracting and retaining the best and the brightest. Knoll solutions have universal appeal to all generations of workers.
 

Client Spaces

Reflect your brand, set your image. Comfort, quality and finish all serve as opportunities to convey a culture and imply stature and size.

Private, secure meeting areas where confidentiality can be maintained are critical to the unique work of law firms. Refuge areas for private calls, storage for personal items, and access to power in open areas are essential for client comfort.
