Mintz Continues Washington, D.C. Growth, Relocates to and Expands Office Space at the Thurman Arnold Building

Mintz announced today the relocation of its office in Washington, D.C. to accommodate the firm’s continued strategic expansion. The firm has moved into the Thurman Arnold Building, occupying 57,000 square feet of office space at 555 12th St., NW, a nearly 782,000-square-foot building by F and 12th Streets NW.

“As we continue to expand the firm’s capabilities to better serve the needs of our clients, a new office in D.C. became a priority. Just in the last year D.C. has added 13 lawyers,” said Susan Berson, Managing Member of Mintz’s Washington, D.C. Office and Chair of the firm’s Health Law, Communications, Antitrust & ML Strategies Division. “The state-of-the-art Thurman Arnold Building provides us with a modern, technologically advanced workplace designed to facilitate collaboration with each other and with our clients, and offers a host of additional amenities. While the new space meets the firm’s needs today, it is also flexible to adapt to its future needs.”

Mintz opened an office in Washington, D.C. in 1979, headed by Charles D. Ferris, former Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Since then it has grown to more than 70 attorneys and ML Strategies government consultants, focused primarily on federal regulation, legislation, and litigation, with an emphasis on communications, the environment, health care, and antitrust. 

Spanning one city block, 555 12th St. NW, known as the Thurman Arnold Building, is located in Washington, D.C.'s historic downtown. With an exceptional location between Capitol Hill and the White House, the building boasts immediate access to seats of power and those advising policy makers and true agents of change. In addition to being named a “showcase project” by the Better Buildings Initiative of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for its technology upgrades, 555 12th Street is also certified LEED Gold.
