Law firm Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman is moving two blocks south of its Midtown East offices to William Kaufman Organization‘s 747 Third Avenue, Commercial Observer has learned.
Specializing in personal injury, the law firm has taken 9,310 square feet in a 10-year deal spanning the entire 23rd floor of the 39-story building between East 46th and East 47th Streets, according to Avison Young, which brokered the deal on behalf of the tenant.
Avison Young’s Michael Gottlieb, Anthony Lopresti and Jason Meister represented Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman in the transaction, while Michael Lenchner of Sage Realty, the leasing and management division of the William Kaufman Organization, represented the landlord in-house. Mr. Lenchner wasn’t immediately available for comment.
The law firm will contract Avison Young’s project management services team to oversee the build-out of its new office space in the 403,469-square-foot building. The asking rent wasn’t immediately available.
“We’ve been in this Midtown East neighborhood for years, and this particular building is ideal for the growth of Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, and our continued success providing important services to victims of medical malpractice and other serious injuries,” stated Jeffrey A. Lichtman, a senior partner at the law firm, in prepared remarks. “With its excellent location just minutes from Grand Central Terminal and near the Lexington Avenue subway lines, the building is a perfect fit.”
Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, currently located at 777 Third Avenue between East 48th and East 49th Streets, is expected to relocate in the second quarter of 2015.
“We explored a number of options in both Midtown and Downtown, but ultimately Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman felt that 747 Third Avenue proved to be the best solution, as it provides the firm’s clients and employees with convenient access to important train and bus lines,” Mr. Gottlieb said. Further, having recently been renovated, 747 Third Avenue will provide the law firm with a range of amenities that are important in the recruitment and retention of top talent.”
