Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP Expands Square Footage in New York Office

Firm expands office space centrally located in Midtown Manhattan

July 23, 2015

New York – Hinshaw announced today that the firm is expanding in New York with an additional 6,967 square feet of office space at its 800 Third Avenue location, bringing the firm’s total occupancy there to 26,977 square feet.

Hinshaw first signed a 20,010-square-foot lease at 800 Third Avenue two years ago and has been gradually expanding ever since. The new lease will keep Hinshaw in the space until June, 2024.

The expansion enables the firm to bring in the five attorneys from Barger & Wolen LLP that merged with Hinshaw in October 2014. The need for additional space was also spurred by recent lateral hires, including partners  Janis Meyer and Alan Kaufman. The expansion also allows ample space for future growth.

"This New York office expansion is less about growth, but rather reflects our strategy of delivering highly specialized resources, talent and expertise in focused practice areas, with enhanced work space efficiency," said Kevin Joseph Burke, Chairman. "The New York office is a thriving location for our professional services representation, consumer class action/business litigation and insurance practice strength and differentiation."

J. Richard Supple Jr., Partner-in-Charge of Hinshaw’s New York office, added, “With the latest additions, the New York office has grown by approximately 60 percent in two years. This is an exciting time for our local team and we look forward to realizing what we can achieve as we bring our New York attorneys and staff together in this expanded space.”

Kaye Gregg, a broker at CBRE/U.S. Equities and John Mambrino of Savillis-Studley, represented Hinshaw in the deal. 800 Third Avenue Associates, which owns the building, was represented by Joseph P. Day Realty Corp. Solomon Cordwell Buenz was the architect on the project.
