In the December 2015 edition of Biz New Orleans Magazine, E. Paige Sensenbrenner, New Orleans Senior Partner in Charge, spent time with feature writer, Bonnie Warren as she takes a look around the New Orleans office of Adams and Reese while photographer Cheryl Gerber snapped a few photos. The office and interview with Sensenbrenner appeared as a feature article and part of a “Great Office Spaces” series by Warren.

Perched high above the New Orleans skyline at 701 Poydras St., the law firm of Adams and Reese occupies four floors of One Shell Square, with the main reception area and most of the conference rooms on the 45th floor. Almost every space offers sweeping views of the Mississippi River as it winds through several parishes.

Today the firm occupies 85,186 square feet on four floors — 43, 44, 45 and 46, with three of the floors having undergone major renovations in the past few years.

Three of the floors have a new look. “We began renovations on the 43rd and 44th floors in 2013,” Sensenbrenner says. “Included in the 44th-floor changes is the new state-of-the-art Thomas G. O’Brien Media Center. The facility, along with our other media centers throughout the firm, is significant to our regional presence and communications.”

Renovations to the 45th floor began in 2014. “We like to note that our offices throughout our regional footprint are all handsome with common elements, yet they each have a special touch of local flavor from their respective market,” Sensenbrenner says.
