ATLANTA (Jan. 18, 2011) – As the country continues to shake off the economic malaise, it’s nice to read about companies that are expanding their operations. One such company is Berkley Specialty Underwriting Managers of Atlanta.
Berkley, which occupies about 16,000 square feet at Three Ravinia, just leased an additional 7,184 square feet at Two Ravinia for another business unit. I represented Berkley in the transaction, and Jeff Keppen of CB Richard Ellis represented the landlord, an affiliate of Eola Capital.
Expansions such as Berkley’s are good news for Atlanta’s business community. They’re indicative of an improving economy, and Carter is pleased to have help Berkley locate a new office location right next to its main office.
A subsidiary of the W.R. Berkley Corp., Berkley Specialty Underwriting Managers operates as an underwriting management company providing excess and surplus lines general liability coverage to the wholesale market and a complete portfolio of commercial property casualty insurance products to the entertainment, sports and environmental industries.
