RELATED TOPICS​

Barnes & Thornburg has expanded into New York City with the opening of a Manhattan office and the hiring of six lateral partners and other seasoned attorneys from several of the city’s elite law firms.The founding partners of the New York office bring together decades of experience providing sophisticated counsel to major investment funds and investors, banks, and other financial institutions. The team in New York builds upon Barnes & Thornburg’s established national reputation, strength, and resources by advising clients within and outside of New York in key practice areas, including equity and debt investment and financing transactions; the formation, operation and regulation of private investment funds; complex commercial and white collar litigation; and regulatory and governmental investigations.

“It’s exciting to join a firm with the growth trajectory of Barnes & Thornburg, and to do so with a group of lawyers at the top of their respective fields,” said Robert J. Boller, partner in charge of the New York office. “This is a career-defining opportunity for all of us. The exceptional team we’re building in New York will be able to leverage the firm’s deep bench of sophisticated, talented attorneys around the country to provide unrivalled value to our clients in this highly competitive space.”

The Midtown office, located at 445 Park Avenue, opened in February. The group has been working remotely since mid-March. Despite the challenges of establishing a New York presence amid a global pandemic, the team has continued to onboard clients, recruit talent, hire additional legal staff, and handle sophisticated transactional and litigation matters throughout the shutdown.

“Opening an office in the world’s financial centre enhances our position in a variety of practice areas and is a key feature of the firm’s strategic growth plan and another important step in the firm’s national growth in recent years,” says Robert T Grand, Barnes & Thornburg managing partner. “This talented and respected group of attorneys, who join during challenging times and bring impressive resumes, strong reputations, and deep knowledge of the New York market, further empower us to handle complex corporate and litigation matters on behalf of our clients.”
