40 Wall St. Adds Legal Tenant in Full-Floor Lease

KI Legal, a growing law firm founded by attorneys Andreas Koutsoudakis and Michael Iakovou, has closed on a lease for the entire 49th floor at 40 Wall St. The 10-year lease is for approximately 9,200 square feet. The firm is relocating from 90 Broad St., where it occupies about 4,000 square feet.

Norman Bobrow & Co managing director Josh Berger, who represented the tenant, said, “KI Legal is expanding because their business is growing exponentially. The partners feel that it’s important to have a strong, interactive and collaborative office culture to produce the best results for their clients since they are a multi-disciplinary firm. They are investing in the future of the firm.” 

Colliers’ Robert Goodman and Tiffany Benton represented the property’s ownership, the Trump Organization, in leasing negotiations. The Trump Organization is delivering the space specifically built for the tenant’s needs.
