Attorneys at the two biggest law firms in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, are moving back into their downtown building this week after abandoning the offices on June 11 because of flooding that forced a mandatory evacuation of the city center.

Simmons Perrine, which has 40 lawyers, will return to its office space at 115 Third Street S.E. on Thursday, while Shuttleworth & Ingersoll, with 38 lawyers located in the same building, returned on Monday, leaders of the two firms said. Neither firm had damage to their office space because they were on the upper floors of the building, but the lawyers were unable to return until now because the building didn’t have power.
