Perkins Coie has signed a sublease expanding their office at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
The law firm will be taking over Squire Sanders’ 24,258 square foot floor in the building. The office currently houses forty employees consisting of seventeen attorneys, a patent agent, and twelve general staff members.
“We are excited to expand our office space in 30 Rockefeller Plaza as we broaden our team of attorneys experienced in financial, transactional and litigation services,” Schuyler Carroll, a managing director at the New York office, said in a prepared statement. “As the firm continues to grow, this office space creates a more flexible work environment to accommodate new hires and provide a more collaborative environment for partners visiting from other offices.”
The expansion efforts started with the addition of a dozen new attorneys to the New York office. Perkins Coie increased their intellectual property and corporate practice with bringing in John Squires, Dennis Hopskins, and Richard Ross as partners in February.
Kenneth Rapp of CBRE represented the law firm and Chris Mongeluzo, Moshe Sukenik and Eric Zemachson of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank represented the Squire Sanders in the sublease. The asking rent was $65 per square foot.
The sublease is set for three years.
