NEW YORK CITY-A private client law firm representing high net worth individuals has moved into a full floor at 430 Park Ave., and a rapidly growing practice whose clients include a wide range of Fortune 500 institutions will occupy two full floors at 488 Madison Ave.

Withers Bergman LLP, which limits its clientele to wealthy folk, their wealthy families and advisors, has moved into its new 10th-floor, 8,500-sf headquarters at 430 Park Ave. The entire building recently underwent a full renovation, and Withers Bergman built out its space to reflect the firm’s exclusive, old-money image.

Cushman & Wakefield senior director Barry Zeller and executive director Jonathan Serko represented the law firm while C&W’s August DiRenzo, John Isaacs and Howard Nottingham negotiated on behalf of building owner 430 Park Ave. LLP. Terms of the lease have not been disclosed, but recent deals in the 19-story building closed in the high $60s.

“This was the perfect opportunity for Withers Bergman to reaffirm its position as the world’s leading private client law firm,” said Mr. Zeller. “The build-out was designed to mirror Wither’s offices in London, creating a consistency of image essential to a global firm.”

In a separate deal, law firm Hahn & Hessen LLP on Friday will move into the entire 14th and 15th floors at 488 Madison Ave. The newly built out 42,500-sf space replaces the firm’s former 34,000-sf offices at 350 Fifth Ave.

CB Shaw Inc.’s Barry Shaw represented Hahn & Hessen in the 15-year deal while Jeffrey Management Corp.’s Eric Derfner negotiated on behalf of owner the Feil Organization.

“In recent years, Hahn & Hessen has grown and changed tremendously, and we are delighted to move to a space which we feel reflects our evolution and will accommodate our future growth,” says Daniel J. Krauss, Managing Partner of Hahn & Hessen. “We have designed our new space to suit our particular needs as a firm, but our goal is to have a flexible and professional environment conducive to our commitment to providing exemplary legal services to our clients.”
