Archer Law is relocating from Haddonfield to Voorhees, to the former American Water headquarters.
The full-service law firm on Tuesday announced the move of its headquarters, which becomes effective January 2022, stating that the change positions it for continued growth and expansion within a more collaborative, technologically advanced space.
“We are excited for our relocation and to be working in an innovative, thoughtfully designed space that reflects a dynamic new chapter for our firm,” said Christopher Gibson, president at Archer. “Archer has longstanding, deep roots in New Jersey, even as we expand throughout the mid-Atlantic region, and we’re happy to continue to call New Jersey our primary home.”
Located at 1025 Laurel Oak Road, the 72,342-square-foot space will serve as the primary office for 90 attorneys and nearly 100 staff.
“Having Archer grow and build out a bigger footprint here in Camden County is good for our local economy and good for our overall business community,” Camden County Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli Jr. said. “Keeping a firm the size and scope of Archer here is a testament to everything this county can offer from proximity to clients. This new campus for Archer sends one very clear message: Camden County is open for business.”
The renovated three-story building includes collaborative, tech-enabled workspaces designed to embrace the modern workplace with access to a host of on-site amenities, including a conference center, with space to hold gatherings ranging from large seminars to smaller, private consultations; and an elevated newsfeed video wall in the atrium where employees can work collaboratively or grab a bite to eat.
The building is designed around a three-story atrium with skylights and a perimeter window line to provide the building’s exterior and interior with more natural light than a traditional office.
“The firm is thrilled to welcome attorneys and our administrative professionals into a new, modern space adapted to both in-person and virtual styles of business,” added Stacey Sinclair, chief operating officer at Archer. “With the uncertainties of COVID still looming, great effort was made to spaciously design to accommodate social distancing, while at the same time incorporating technology to allow for a hybrid working environment.”
In addition to the new Voorhees office, Archer has more than 170 lawyers practicing across eight offices throughout the mid-Atlantic region, including Hackensack, Princeton and Red Bank; Philadelphia and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; Wilmington, Delaware; and New York.
