Manhattan, NY According to Fish & Richardson, the IP law firm’s office has moved to Times Sq. Tower at 7 Times Sq. The firm signed a 10-year lease in August 2019 to occupy the entire 20th floor–27,000 s/f–in the 47-story, class A, LEED certified office tower in Midtown. Fish relocated from 601 Lexington Ave., which had been the firm’s home for 15 years.
The new space was gut renovated and designed with a focus on collaboration and interaction–with multiple common areas such as a large, centrally-located café, bigger conference rooms and spaces where people can work together in comfortable and engaging environments.
All the offices are single-sized, which allows the firm multiple options in how the offices can be used and reduces the overall footprint.
The offices also feature glass fronts, which bring natural light into the entire area – making the space both warm and vibrant.
“We are very excited about our new office. We love the energy and excitement here as well as the convenient location in Times Sq. We are a global firm with more than 400 attorneys and technology specialists across 13 offices in the U.S., Europe and China, and many of our attorneys work out of this space – and meet clients here – even if they are not based in our New York office,” said Robert Sullivan, Jr., managing principal of Fish’s NY office. “With this new space, we were able to create an environment that better fits the way our law firm and our cross-functional, multi-office teams work.”
Fish opened its New York office in 1995, and there are currently 30 attorneys and 70 employees total who are based in New York. Throughout its rich history, Fish has represented some of the most innovative and influential industry leaders dating back to visionaries Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, and the Wright Brothers. Today, the firm’s clients include Microsoft, Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics, Bose, Allergan, and Gilead Sciences to name a few.
Many of the conference rooms in the new office are named after the firm’s famous inventor clients and feature original themed artwork relating to Fish’s work. The focal point of the lobby/reception area is a large graphic art installation of the Wright Brothers’ “Flying Machine” patent drawing, which wraps around an all-glass breakout room. Fish protected the Wright Brothers’ in patent litigation with Glenn Curtiss in the early 1900s.
