Law firm which is celebrating its 50th anniversary moving to north tower at Key Center at Fountain Plaza to accommodate significant growth

Lippes Mathias Wexler Friedman LLP officially announced today that the law firm is moving its offices to the top two floors in the north tower at Key Center at Fountain Plaza.  The firm anticipates moving into its new reconfigured space on the 16th and 17th floors in January 2016.  The law firm is currently located at 665 Main Street.

“After much due diligence, we are excited to be moving our law firm to one of downtown Buffalo's premier office buildings, a move that will accommodate our continuing significant growth for years to come,” said Scott E. Friedman, the firm's Managing Partner. “Our law firm is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and, while there were plenty of opportunities to relocate to the suburbs, we never wavered in our commitment to remain in downtown Buffalo. Our new space is being designed to reflect both the transformative changes in our city as well as at our law firm.”

Ciminelli Real Estate Corporation, which manages and leases the property on behalf of owners Key Success, LLC, secured the 15-year lease with Lippes. Ciminelli will also  manage a complete custom build-out to accommodate the firm's current workforce of approximately 80 full time employees including space as new personnel is hired based on the firm’s significant growth of late.  The law firm is relocating to Key Center without seeking any government subsidies or tax incentives.

“We obviously are delighted to lease this premier Class A office space to such a prestigious law firm that has been part of the community for decades,” said Paul Ciminelli, President and CEO, Ciminelli Real Estate Corporation.  “There are a number of exciting developments taking place at and in the near vicinity of Key Center, and we look forward to working with the building owners in making it the focal point of the Central Business District.”

“The city’s continued investment in the ‘Cars Sharing Main Street’ project, housing, retail programs like Queen City Pop Up and today’s announcement are helping to ensure that downtown Buffalo continues to grow as a 24/7 live, work and play destination,” said Mayor Byron W. Brown.  “I applaud both Lippes and Ciminelli Real Estate on their plans for Key Center, which will only enhance the economic impact of the law firm’s move to this downtown landmark.”
