On May 23, 2023, the New York Law Journal featured Matthew McLaughlin and Chris Borello on the opening of Venable’s new office in New York.
According to the article, even before the pandemic ushered in a new work paradigm, Venable’s New York office knew that it needed a different type of space for its operations, which was split between 1270 and 1290 Avenue of the Americas in Manhattan.
In early 2020, they found what they were looking for at 151 W. 42nd St. in Times Square. In 2021, the firm signed a 15-year lease for the roughly 170,000-square-foot space, and this spring, the 180-attorney office officially moved in.
“This new office move represents our focus on collaborating in the office while recognizing that work styles have changed, rebuilding New York, and being where our clients need us,” said Borello. “The move should also reassure our clients, both in New York and across the nation, that we will continue to be a steady hand for them in uncertain times.”
The Washington, DC-based firm has steadily grown its ranks since entering the New York market in 2005 with a team of 11 attorneys. And firm leaders are looking ahead to a future where its Empire State numbers grow beyond 200.
“Over the years we have continued to grow steadily in head count, expand our service offerings, and improve upon our capabilities in several practice areas by strategically making smart, measured decisions, such as our combination with Fitzpatrick Cella and the addition of a Construction Law Group,” McLaughlin said.
