Brinderson Towers--those hard-to-miss black granite high-rises in Irvine--seem to have become a magnet for attorneys. The 16 law firms and 139 attorneys in the office complex account for more than one-third of the buildings' tenants. In Tower II alone, which is about 35% occupied, two-thirds of the tenants are law firms. "The buildings offer the prestige with which law firms like to be associated," said Stephen Lane, leasing manager with Compass Management and Leasing Inc.

The name of the landmark Brinderson Towers office complex in Irvine is about to change: Workers began stripping the Brinderson name from the signs this week. But a spokesman for developer Gary Brinderson, whose company built the $185-million black granite and glass complex in a joint venture with Equitable Life Assurance Co., says that the renaming does not reflect any financial or management difficulties at the complex.
