New York-based Lowenstein Sandler has opened an office in the nation’s capital, with the help of a four-lawyer insurance coverage team from Dickstein Shapiro that represents policyholders.
Three partners are also relocating to Washington, D.C., from the firm’s New York and New Jersey offices, creating a 7-attorney roster in the new outpost, the firm announced Monday. Jeffrey Blumenfeld, who currently chairs Lowenstein’s antitrust group, will serve as top administrator there.
The approximately 300-attorney firm has leased a 15,000-square-foot space at 2200 Pennsylvania Avenue that provides “room to grow” in Washington, chairman Gary Wingens told Legal Times (sub. req.).
He said he expects the office to focus on regulatory work and is looking to recruit lawyers who now work for the federal government to work for Lowenstein.
The Washington Post (reg. req.) also has a story.
The firm also has offices in Roseland, New Jersey, and Palo Alto, California.
