Crown Center Signs New Lease with Sedgwick LLP
Crown Center has signed a new lease with Sedgwick for roughly 20,000-square-feet of office space in the 2301 McGee at Crown Center Office Building. The firm's move will create nearly 100 jobs.
An international litigation and business law firm based in San Francisco, Sedgwick will consolidate its global administrative operations and open a Shared Services Center at Crown Center in July. Sedgwick's firm wide operations are currently dispersed throughout its global network of offices, with many firm wide personnel based in San Francisco.
"We looked at scores of communities across the country during our search for a city that offered us the unique opportunity to tap into a diverse and talented workforce in a vibrant and pro-business environment. Kansas City is that city," said Michael A. Tanenbaum, Sedgwick's Chair of the firm. "Making Crown Center the home for our new state-of-the-art Shared Services Center will allow us to enhance the world class client service for which we are known, while meeting the every changing needs of our global clients and the needs of the members of the Sedgwick family in our fifteen offices around the world."
"Crown Center is thrilled to welcome Sedgwick to Kansas City," said Bill Lucas, Crown Center President. "We know they'll also be very pleased with our central location, with Crown Center's amenities and with the outstanding workforce our city can offer them."
Sedgwick is working with Metropolitan Community College to help recruit employees. Those interested should visit sedgwicklaw.mcckc.edu . For more information on Sedgwick, the firm's website is at www.sedgwicklaw.com.
