Longtime Legal Tenant Re-Ups at Downtown Landmark

One of the nation’s oldest law firms is renewing its lease in a Downtown tower on the site of its founder’s first law office. Emmet, Marvin & Martin LLP, founded by Thomas Addis Emmet in 1805, has recommitted to 53,000 square feet at 120 Broadway.

“A tenant since 1991, this renewal maintains Emmet, Marvin & Martin’s longstanding presence at 120 Broadway,” said Michael Norris of Cushman & Wakefield. “The space will undergo a full renovation, modernizing their classic law firm space and further strengthening the efficiency of the partnership.”

Norris represented the tenant in the full-floor lease renewal, together with his Cushman & Wakefield colleagues Robert Lowe and Nicholas Dysenchuk. Ownership was represented by Roger Silverstein and Joseph Artusa of Silverstein Properties, which has been the law firm’s landlord since it moved to the Financial District landmark. The 103-year-old 120 Broadway is itself undergoing a major capital improvement program.
