Freshfields Inks 15-Year Lease to Move NYC Offices to 3 World Trade Center   

Law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer US LLP has signed a 15-year, 180,000 square-foot lease at Silverstein Properties’ 3 World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. The firm will occupy floors 51 through 54 when it moves from its current Midtown location at 601 Lexington Ave. in early 2024.  

“3 World Trade Center is one of the most technologically advanced, sustainable and transit-oriented buildings in the country,” said Olivia Radin, Freshfields’ New York office managing partner. “The space in this impressive tower will match the excellence that Freshfields delivers for our people and our clients every day,” 

Jeremy Moss, EVP of Silverstein Properties, led negotiations on behalf of the landlord, alongside CBRE’s Mary Ann Tighe, Ken Meyerson, Adam Foster, Evan Haskell, Steve Eynon, Caroline Merck and Rob Hill. Freshfields was represented by a Savills team of David J. Goldstein, Jarod Stern and Savills New York City Consulting Group.
