White and Williams Announces Moves to Larger Office Space in New York and Boston
White and Williams announced the expansion and relocation of its New York City and Boston offices. These moves are part of the firm’s overall commitment to strategic growth in both of these cities.
White and Williams’ New York City office will be located at 7 Times Square Tower, 42nd Street and Broadway, and will occupy 27,488 square feet with room for over fifty lawyers. Thirty-three lawyers will be resident in the new office. Their practices are representative of the broad range of services provided by the firm, including corporate and securities, cyber law and data protection, directors and officers, finance, financial restructuring and bankruptcy, general commercial litigation, healthcare, insurance coverage/regulatory and transactional, intellectual property, international transactions and disputes, life/health/disability/ERISA, private equity and venture capital, professional liability, reinsurance, real estate, and tax and estates.
The new Boston office, occupying 7,669 square feet, will have thirteen lawyer offices, and is in the historic Downtown Crossing section of the city at 101 Arch Street. White and Williams also has plans to further expand the office in 2017 by another 3,303 square feet for a total of 10,972 square feet of space. The office currently has nine resident lawyers who practice in diverse areas including appellate, corporate and securities, finance, general commercial litigation, insurance coverage and bad faith, intellectual property, labor and employment, life sciences, private equity and venture capital, product liability, professional liability and toxic torts/environmental.
For 115 years, White and Williams has delivered high quality legal work based on the core values of excellence, creativity and commitment. These values have been the foundation that led the firm to succeed as a multi-practice provider of sophisticated legal services. The need for larger office space in both New York City and Boston demonstrates the firm’s continued commitment to its clients throughout the Northeast region.
“The relocation and expansion of our New York City and Boston offices allow us to strengthen our position as a leading law firm,” said Patricia Santelle, Managing Partner and Chair of the Executive Committee. “These new offices are part of our continuing commitment to meet the growing needs of our clients in these cities and throughout the country.”
“We have been searching for the right location that will suit the needs of our clients, maintain our culture, and provide much needed additional space,” said John Eagan, Managing Partner of the New York City Office. “Our new location accomplishes each of those goals.”
“The new Boston space is ideal for us,” said David Chaffin, Managing Partner of the Boston Office. “We now have room for further growth as the Boston legal market expands and to better accommodate visiting lawyers from our other offices,” he continued.
Throughout the search process for the appropriate space to foster growth and accessibility, in New York, White and Williams utilized the broker services of Dirk Hrobsky, Chris Helgeson and Chris Sterling from Cushman & Wakefield along with Judson Wambold and Rob Cellucci from Tactix. In Boston the firm worked with Graham Allison and Jack Troast of T3 Advisors.
The Boston office will be relocated at the end of October. The New York relocation is scheduled for mid-November.
