Washington law firms on the move Washington D.C. law firm Venable will move its headquarters to 600 Massachusetts Ave. NW in 2017, The Washington Post reports. Venable has about 400 attorneys and staff in the District.
The firm anchor the newly constructed Gould Property office tower near Mount Vernon Square, and will occupy about 245,000 square feet on five floors, the Post says. Venable is currently at 575 Seventh St. NW, by Gallery Place, and plans to move during the first quarter of 2017.
The Post says the move is part of a trend:
Venable joins other firms in relocating to the Eastern end of downtown, part of a migration of high-end tenants toward neighborhoods now filled with new restaurants and amenities. Other examples include Covington & Burling, which took the lion’s share of the office space at CityCenter DC, and Arnold & Porter, which will occupy a new office tower across the street from the Gould project, at 635 Massachusetts Ave. NW.
Republicans change attorneys in suit against Obama Also in D.C.-related news, Baker & Hostetler has been replaced as the firm representing Republican House members in their suit against President Obama, Politico reports.
Baker & Hostetler faced political pressure for taking the lawsuit on. Politico quoted a House staffer who said “the change of firms came after multiple clients of Baker & Hostetler expressed concern that the firm was engaged in what the companies saw as an overtly partisan lawsuit.”
A new contract was signed last week with Quinn Emanuel Urquhart’s William Burck. The lawsuit centers on the delay of the employer mandate provision of Obamacare.
