It was an evening of "Blues, Brews & BBQ" when the Lorandos Joshi Trial Lawyers held a Friday evening get-together to mark the first anniversary of their new office location.

The company moved into the building at 2400 S. Huron Parkway in May of 2012 when the firm outgrew its former space in downtown Ann Arbor.

The prominent location at the intersection of Huron Parkway and Platt--with a fountain in front--offers clients and staff free, easy parking in a stylish, light-filled setting.

The building was formerly an architectural firm and a bank before that. The vault, in fact, comes in handy for storing files.

Why throw the party?

"Why not?" asked managing partner Ashish Joshi. "We are a litigation only firm. Litigation is intensive, at times stressful, takes long hours and at times, working through weekends and/or nights."

Joshi said that having a nice working environment helps.

"Plus, we litigate around the country so we are also often on the road," he said. "We jump at any excuse to throw a party and let our hair down when we can. We have a remarkable and diverse group of lawyers who come from different backgrounds, speak different languages--Spanish, Hindi, Gujarati, German--and from different ethnicity/cultures. Parties are more fun when you have such a varied group of people."

He said staff love the new office space, which combines the best of traditional offices and open areas.

"It allows a more collaborative atmosphere and an environment where our team can simply grab a coffee or lunch together and share ideas," he said.

The firm is currently involved in cases going on in Michigan, Texas, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Colorado, Pennsylvania, and Utah.
