30 Rock Welcomes Haynes and Boone New York
NEW YORK – Haynes and Boone, LLP has completed the much-anticipated relocation of its rapidly expanding New York office to 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
Haynes and Boone occupies 74,600 square feet, the entire 25th and 26th floors, in the landmark 70-story office tower. The move more than doubles the firm’s former 35,000-square-foot space in the McGraw-Hill Building at 1221 Avenue of the Americas.
The firm began practicing in New York with a single attorney in 2004 and has since grown to more than 50 lawyers. New York Managing Partner Kenneth Bezozo said the move to 30 Rock was in anticipation of substantial continued expansion as the firm aims to increase its New York practice to 100 attorneys in the next few years.
The firm’s New York office temporarily will sublease 10,000 to 12,000 square feet but expects to fill both floors within five years. A pivotal factor in the selection was the building’s recent multimillion-dollar facelift, including a new lobby, windows and heating and ventilation units.
As part of its strategic growth plans, Haynes and Boone’s New York office has significantly bolstered its finance, real estate, litigation, bankruptcy, securities regulation and white collar criminal defense capabilities.
Haynes and Boone, LLP is an international corporate law firm with offices in Texas, New York, California, Washington, D.C., Mexico City and Moscow, providing a full spectrum of legal services.
