The law firm of Rutan & Tucker, one of the county's larger office tenants, has negotiated a new lease at Central Bank Tower in Costa Mesa said by the landlord to be worth about $25 million. The lease is one of the largest in Orange County this year, covering 90,000 square feet over 10 years. Brokers said such a large tenant as Rutan & Tucker probably negotiated a very favorable deal with the landlord, C.J. Segerstrom & Sons.

Two years ago the fledgling Orange County Chamber Orchestra realized that to keep operating harmoniously it needed more than violins and cellos. The nonprofit group required legal assistance for a myriad of tasks, from drawing up contracts with visiting artists to negotiating with the musicians union.
