Grais & Ellsworth, a law firm that specializes in complex litigation, experienced tremendous growth over the past 18 months, triggering an immediate need for additional square footage.
Our new office will provide us with a more efficient layout and brand new installation, along with enough space to hire additional attorneys and staff without having to worry about where to put them," said Kathryn Ellsworth, partner, Grais & Ellsworth.
Grais & Ellsworth retained UGL Services vice president Gregg Espach and associate vice president Douglas Levine, who represented the firm in its previous relocation.
UGL Services and Grais & Ellsworth evaluated relocation options over a 10-month period.
The law firm Grais & Ellsworth is close to a deal to sublease the entire 32nd floor of 1211 Avenue of the Americas.
Representatives from both Grais & Ellsworth and Ropes & Gray declined to comment on the deal.
The fact that the master tenant is a law firm likely makes the space especially suitable for Grais & Ellsworth.
