Fenwick Opens Office in New York's Tech Hub

Fenwick becomes only large technology and life sciences law firm located in tech-centric Flatiron district

New York, NY (October 8, 2018) – Fenwick & West has relocated its New York office to 902 Broadway in the Flatiron district, the center of New York’s technology, startup and venture capital community.

“Our New York office has been a resounding success,” Fenwick chair Richard Dickson said. “The office has grown more than five-fold since opening and we’re at 45 lawyers in New York. We’ve added eight partners in the last three months to help grow our client base and meet our clients’ diverse needs, and we continue to recruit top legal talent in New York who are excited to focus their efforts in the technology and life sciences industries.”

“Fenwick has long had a solid base of clients in the New York area, and we have substantially grown our New York City and East Coast client base in the two years we've been here, expanding our practice areas and broadening our services,” corporate partner Ian Goldstein said. “Our move to the Flatiron district and our unique office space underscores our commitment to innovation in the practice of law and to the support and growth of our East Coast and global client base. The move also allows our team to be more integrated locally with many of the emerging technology and life sciences clients we represent.” 

Leading Tech Firm Designs Collaborative Space in New York’s Tech Hub
“We’re incredibly excited to move into our new office in the Flatiron district,” IP litigation partner Kevin McGann said. “We’ve seen tremendous enthusiasm for the new office and our new neighborhood from both clients and colleagues. Our move into New York’s tech center reflects our commitment to innovation in delivering legal services for our tech and life sciences clients.”

Fenwick’s new Flatiron district office features innovative and open floor plans, collaborative work spaces and unique conference and meeting spaces, all enabled by state of the art technology. Fenwick’s office design is intended not only to support its professionals and clients, but also to allow the firm to further support and integrate with the broader technology and life sciences ecosystem in New York City.
