BOSTON –– Margulies Perruzzi announced today that it has completed renovations to the Boston headquarters of global law firm, Ropes & Gray LLP.

MP provided space planning and interior design services for the design and renovations to three floors in Ropes & Gray’s premises in Boston’s Prudential Tower.

Ropes & Gray occupies 17 floors in the Prudential Tower and sought to refresh portions of its office while preserving the design essence of the existing space.

The project included office conversions, new offices, workstations, meeting rooms, and shared workspaces on Floors 35, 36, and 45. All renovations were performed in harmony with Ropes & Gray standards for finish and design quality.
