Shutts & Bowen LLP, a mainstay among law firms in downtown Tampa, is preparing to pack up its files and head west — to the Westshore business district, where other firms have moved in recent years.

Orlando-based Eola Capital has signed Shutts & Bowen to a long-term lease for 32,829 square feet in the Corporate Center Four at International Plaza office building, at 4301. W. Boy Scout Blvd. The firm is currently at tenant at the Wachovia Center building downtown.

Alan Higbee, managing partner of Shutts & Bowen's Tampa office, says Westshore's centralized location and proximity to Tampa International Airport were key factors in making the move. Client convenience also comes into play, he says.

“There is no longer a compelling reason for a major law firm to be downtown,” Higbee tells Coffee Talk. “Our practice spans local, national and international clients, and Westshore is simply more convenient for most all of our clients.”

Founded in Miami in 1910, Shutts & Bowen has five other Florida offices, as well as an overseas office in Amsterdam.
