Connecticut Legal Services is the latest law firm to lease space at 1000 Lafayette Blvd. in Bridgeport. According to commercial real estate broker Avison Young and property owner Shelbourne Global Solutions LLC, the Class A office building is now home to more than a half dozen law firms and other law-related tenants.
Connecticut Legal Services, the largest legal aid agency in the state, signed a long-term lease for 4,800 square feet on the ninth floor of 1000 Lafayette Blvd. DH White Real Estate Services represented the tenant in the deal.
Avison Young’s Fairfield/Westchester office was named exclusive agent at the property last summer.

Other legal tenants include the Offices of the United States Attorneys; AHC Law; and Ryan, Ryan Deluca, which signed a new long-term lease for 12,351 square feet on the eighth floor of 1000 Lafayette in the spring. Zeldes Needle Cooper PC, a 30-year tenant, relocated within the building to nearly 16,000 square feet of a newly built space on the seventh floor.
Among the building’s other tenants are Citizens Bank, TD Bank and Regus, an executive office solutions firm.
The property, built in 1989 and renovated in 2012, is GSA-approved and features onsite property management.
