Firmspace Targets Legal Profession

Downtown coworking space is courting small firms in LoDo

A new office space in downtown Denver caters to solo attorneys looking for the coworking experience without the startup culture that typically goes with it.

Denver coworking options have exploded, with there seeming to be a space that caters to every workforce sector, and that includes the law. Firmspace, which opened June 1 at 14th and Lawrence streets, is not the first coworking space to target legal and business professionals, but it might be the first to open just a few blocks from 17th Street law offices with the same amenities and vibe one might find in BigLaw. Although the space opened this summer, construction was recently finished.

The 22,000-square-foot space is on the 16th floor at 1401 Lawrence Street, sharing a building with Polsinelli. The space feels similar to most downtown law firms with a large lobby with reception and concierge, gym access, dry cleaning and downtown skyline and mountain views.
