Law firm Fried Frank will relocate its Midtown Conference Center to 535 Madison Avenue in 2024

Fried Frank Relocating Midtown Conference Center to 535 Madison

Global law firm Fried Frank will relocate its Midtown Conference Center to 535 Madison, Park Tower Group’s Plaza District office tower. Fried Frank will occupy 14,375 square feet, encompassing the 37-story office tower’s 10th floor, in a 15-year lease.  

The firm is expected to move the conference center from its current 11,703-square-foot location in the Seagram Building in early 2024. While Fried Frank remains committed to its long-term headquarters footprint downtown, the Midtown location will continue to offer convenience to the firm’s Midtown clients. 

Fried Frank was represented by its longtime advisors at CBRE, who include Stephen Siegel, Craig Reicher (a former Fried Frank partner), Tim Dempsey, Ramneek Rikhy and Marlee Tepliztky. The firm was also represented in-house by Jonathan L. Mechanic, Jennifer Yashar and Jackson Cole. CBRE’s Brian Gell and Laurence Briody represented Park Tower Group, along with Kenneth W. Sold at Loeb & Loeb.
