Smith Moore Renews Commitment to Downtown Raleigh

May 9, 2005

Extends Lease for Two Floors in BB&T Building at Two Hannover Square

RALEIGH – Smith Moore LLP, a regional law firm with offices in Raleigh, Greensboro, Wilmington, and Atlanta, has renewed its lease and will remain in downtown Raleigh for the next decade.  The firm will continue to occupy the entire 27th and 28th floors of the BB&T Building at Two Hannover Square, one of the most prominent buildings in the Raleigh skyline.  In the coming months the firm will undertake renovations to reconfigure its approximately 27,000 square foot space, and it also has optioned additional space in the building – both of which are part of the firm's plan to accommodate continuing growth.

Smith Moore managing partner Steve Earp said, "We have a longstanding commitment to downtown Raleigh and its ongoing transformation.  We felt it was a great time to reaffirm our investment in the state capital, and all of the positive developments that are underway, and those expected in the next few years."  Smith Moore opted to stay downtown for its proximity to the Triangle's judicial, legislative and business centers, Earp said.

"Downtown Raleigh has been our neighborhood for a long time," said Brad Risinger, who heads the firm's Raleigh office.  "We've witnessed first-hand the momentum that has been building here, and it’s important to us that we are a part of those positive changes."
