New Space Reinforces Collaborative Culture and Dedication to Client Service
New York, NY – Mintz has relocated its New York office from 666 Third Avenue to 919 Third Avenue. The new office, designed with the help of architectural firm Perkins&Will, accommodates the firm's continuing growth in New York and reflects the changing needs of the workplace. The space features same-size individual offices, a large conference center and multiple collaborative areas, and includes other amenities such as enhanced food service capabilities and meditation and Mothers’ rooms.
"Our former office space served us well over the years, but it was time for a change,” said Stephen J. Gulotta, Jr., Managing Member of Mintz’s New York Office and Chair of the firm’s New York Corporate Practice. “The new workplace better accommodates our growing team and enables us to hire additional talent to continue to provide best-in-class support and service to our clients. We focused on designing an environment that reflects our team’s personality, which is based upon collaboration, collegiality and commitment to client service. We think our team and our clients will find it to be an attractive and enjoyable place to work.”
“As we celebrate 23 years since the office’s founding, this is a particularly important moment for Mintz,” said Bob Bodian, Managing Member of Mintz. “The move represents our continued commitment to serving our clients at the highest levels and reaffirms our commitment to New York and building on our successes in the decades to come. Coming together in person to collaborate and build community will remain an important part of our future, which this place reflects.” In 2009, after just nine years at Mintz, Mr. Bodian became the firm’s managing partner – the first New Yorker to lead the Boston-based firm.
Mintz was among the first Boston-headquartered law firms to expand into the competitive New York market. Mintz Member and Chair of the firm’s International Practice, Richard Kelly, spearheaded the New York expansion efforts, lobbying firm leaders and identifying and leasing office space in the iconic Chrysler Building. In the early days, Mintz distinguished itself in the New York market through its strength representing technology and financial services clients, and has since built upon this groundwork and expanded into a number of key areas. When the firm opened its doors at the Chrysler Building on January 1, 2000, the office had just seven lawyers. Two decades later, Mintz boasts over 130 New York-based attorneys, many in the firm’s nationally-ranked Corporate and Litigation Practices.
Over the past several years, Mintz has experienced substantial and sustained growth in both revenue and profitability. Last fiscal year, the firm achieved its seventh consecutive year of record-breaking returns. Mintz’s New York office is a key contributor to this firmwide success.
Designed by the architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, 919 Third Avenue is a 1.5 million-square-foot, 47-story glass and steel office tower, located on the block front between East 55th and 56th Streets. The lobby, entrances and elevator cabs have been recently upgraded with a design that emphasizes a warm, upscale hospitality ambiance and features an in-lobby coffee bar and a bike room with direct access to the exterior plaza.
