The name for Harvey Spector came from two sources. Harvey was the name of Aaron’s first boss and the last name, Specter was thought up by his wife and was chosen because it sounded ‘cool’. Harvey’s middle name, Reginald was decided upon during a rewrite. The characterisation of Harvey came was developed during the course of writing.
The first time we see Harvey’s condo was in the pilot, it was shot on the top floor of Cooper Sq hotel. Since then they have shown Harvey in two other condo’s. This change in location was due to availabilty.
Harvey was made Junior Partner five years ago, and Senior Partner in the Pilot. Louis resented Harvey’s promotion as he was made Junior Partner before Harvey.
