Sedgwick LLC has inked a deal at 2 World Financial Center.
The renowned law firm is set to move into a 43,000-square-foot office on the 28th floor of Brookfield Properties‘ building in the middle of October with intentions of creating an “office of the future.”
“This move will better enable our talented attorneys to continue to focus on client service, which will be enhanced by our ability to implement new technologies to create an ‘office of the future,'” said New York office managing partner Lawrence Klein in a prepared statement.
“We are particularly excited that, with this move, we will be able to maximize the benefits afforded by the firm’s new, secure off-site data center, thereby reinforcing our ability to work jointly with attorneys in our other offices and communicate with our clients, while at the same time providing greater efficiency in the office layout by reducing our need for on-site computer equipment and records storage,” he added.
The firm, which was founded approximately eighty years ago, opened its first New York office in 1985 and has provided representation and advice for corporate and insurance clients. The firm specializes in employment and labor matters, mass tort litigation, and products liability litigation.
“Our move to Two World Financial Center demonstrates our long-term commitment to serving the needs of our clients in the New York region and allows us to participate in the revitalization of Lower Manhattan,” the firm chair Michael Tanenbaum announced in a release.
David Goldstein and Greg Taubin of Studley and Kevin Brennan of Jones Lang LaSalle represented Sedgwick.
