On October 1, 2010, the Firm expanded and relocated its Florida office to the 16th Floor at CityPlace Office Tower, a 300,000 square foot Class-A office building on Okeechobee Blvd. in downtown West Palm Beach. The location is viewed as one of the best commercial sites in Palm Beach County, anchoring the “gateway” to Palm Beach, less than 10 minutes from Palm Beach International Airport, a quarter of a mile from I-95 and directly across the street from the Palm Beach County Convention Center. As Ralph Rosella, Managing Partner of the Firm was recently quoted: “We recognize the strong business connection between New York and Florida and look forward to having an increased presence in the South Florida market to capitalize on our strategic alliances. We are confident that our new location will facilitate this, in addition to affording us the opportunity to grow and strengthen our emphasis in the areas of commercial litigation, corporate transactions and real estate.”
