Law Firm Heads East to 575 Lex After 50 Years on Fifth
Mid-sized law firm Warshaw Burstein is relocating from 555 Fifth Ave., where it has been housed since the 1960s, to George Comfort & Sons’ 575 Lexington Ave. The firm has signed a new 15-year, 40,383 square-foot lease for the entire seventh floor of 575 Lexington, and will take occupancy next summer.
The seventh-floor space is part of about 105,000 square feet that law firm Boies Schiller Flexner will be vacating later this year. George Comfort is currently marketing the space.
From the standpoint of Warshaw Burstein, 575 Lex’s seventh floor represented “the perfect fit” for both current requirements and future growth, said the law firm’s managing partner, Frederick R. Cummings Jr.
Warshaw Burstein was represented in the transaction by Michael Burgio of Cushman & Wakefield. NKF’s David Falk, Ben Shapiro, Kyle Ciminelli and Michael Shenfeld represented George Comfort & Sons.
