AZA is a Houston-based trial firm that has built its reputation on being “talented, tough, and courtroom-tested.” The firm’s cases often involve high-stakes litigation for multinational companies. Recognizing the impact of a powerful office space, the firm turned to Abel Design Group (ADG) to design a sophisticated space that is comfortable for employees, yet intimidating for opposing counsel. ADG evaluated the user experience of the space, and used light and contrast to achieve the intimidation factor the client was seeking.
