WASHINGTON, DC-As it gets its newly-realigned executive bench settled in, Cushman & Wakefield is making plans to step up its focus on law firm tenants. One of the high-level new hires the company has made in recent days is Sherry Cushman, who has joined the firm as an executive managing director to lead the company’s Law Firm Advisory Practice. Prior to joining C&W, Cushman was a senior vice president at CBRE. Now 10 days into her new position, she will report directly to Jim Underhill, CEO of Cushman & Wakefield’s Americas region.

Chief among Cushman’s duties will be to spearhead an initiative to grow the company’s law firm practice. To that end, C&W plans to establish a special career path for brokers to focus exclusively on law firms. It also plans to double the number of brokers that focus on law firms in the DC area to around 12, both via internal promotion and external hires.
