New York Office Space Doubles

March 12, 2007

NEW YORK (March 12, 2007) To accommodate its fast-growing team of attorneys, Bracewell & Giuliani LLP has doubled its space by leasing an additional 24,475 square feet in its New York City office. The firm, which will mark its two-year anniversary in New York this April, will now occupy both the 18th and 19th floors of the Americas Tower building, located at 1177 Avenue of the Americas.

Bracewell opened its New York office in April 2005 after former New York City mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani joined as a name partner. Since then, the firm's New York office has quickly grown from two to 40 attorneys. 

"The New York office expansion demonstrates the extraordinary success of Bracewell's New York presence," said New York Managing Partner Daniel S. Connolly. "Our rapid growth is the result of our core practices generating a great deal of work out of New York, as well as our successful recruitment efforts that continue to attract the best legal talent in the marketplace."

Cushman & Wakefield, a global real estate firm, and Ron I. Erlichman, a real estate partner in Bracewell’s New York office, represented Bracewell in the deal. Paramount Group, Inc., the agent for 1177 Avenue of the Americas, handled the transaction on behalf of the building owner. The move is officially scheduled for the end of April 2007.

1177 Avenue of the Americas, a 1,000,000 square-foot building, designed by Swanke Hayden Connell Architects and developed by Americas Tower Partners, was finished in 1994.
