Immigration Law Firm Establishes NYC Presence

Avison Young has arranged a seven-year, 19,000-square-foot lease for immigration law firm Berry Appleman & Leiden LLC at SJP Properties’ Eleven Times Square. Eddie Tillman, Brooks Hauf, Peter Johnson, Robert Nero and Cole Chartash of Avison Young represented the tenant.

“We were able to find space for immediate occupancy, following our client’s required business timeline,” said Tillman. “Originally a 10,000-square-foot sublease, we coordinated a termination and expanded the premises into a direct, adjacent unit for a total of 19,000 square feet. We successfully found a space that will allow for growth as the law firm is growing rapidly across the country.”

BAL managing partner Jeremy Fudge called the 1.1-million-square-foot Eleven Times Square “an optimal location for us.”

JLL’s Kristen Morgan, Paul Glickman, Mitch Konsker, Ben Bass, Daniel Turkewitz and Diana Biasotti represented ownership, along with Jeff Schotz of SJP.
