Sachs represented the New York Times Company—which owns several floors of the Forest City Realty Trust’s office tower—along with colleagues Bill Levitsky and Ben Shapiro. John Nugent and Ned Burns of CBRE (CBRE) handled the deal for Williams Lea Tag. A spokeswoman for CBRE did not respond to a request for comment.

Williams Lea Tag has several offices in New York City including a 14,000-square-foot headquarters at 381 Park Avenue South, which it leased in 2014, as CO previously reported. It’s unclear which location Williams Lea Tag will move to the New York Times Building and a spokeswoman for the firm did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Other tenants in the 52-story tower include law firm Goodwin Procter, trading network Liquidnet and insurance company RLI.
