SandRidge Energy, Inc. and Crowe & Dunlevy today announced they have entered into a lease agreement, and the Oklahoma-based law firm will serve as the anchor tenant of the newly renovated, historic Braniff Building, 324 N. Robinson Ave., in downtown Oklahoma City.
Crowe & Dunlevy attorneys and legal staff will occupy approximately 70,000 square feet across nine floors, which equates to 90 percent of the building’s Class A office space. The firm will also sub-lease approximately 5,000 square feet from SandRidge in City Place for additional support staff.
“This building has almost as much history as our firm itself, which makes it perfectly suited to serve as the new home for our Oklahoma City attorneys and staff,” said firm President Kevin Gordon. “We are excited to have a new, modern space for our team to continue providing the highest quality legal services to clients in Oklahoma and across the nation.”
SandRidge Energy completed renovations to the Braniff Building in 2013 as part of the development of the SandRidge Commons.
“SandRidge remains focused on maximizing shareholder value through the efficient and strategic use of our assets, and today, the fully leased Braniff Building is further evidence of that commitment,” said SandRidge President and CEO James Bennett. “As an outstanding downtown corporate citizen, Crowe & Dunlevy is a valued partner, and we are pleased to have them as neighbors and tenants.”
Founded in 1902, Crowe & Dunlevy is one of the most experienced and established full-service legal firms in the state. With nearly 30 practice groups and offices in Oklahoma City and Tulsa, the firm’s clients enjoy access to attorneys with in-depth expertise who provide a comprehensive approach to a variety of legal needs.
The 10-story Braniff Building was designed by architect Andrew Solomon Layton and built in 1923. The building is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
