The powerhouse global law firm White & Case L.L.P. has signed a long-term lease for 440,000 square feet at the Class A tower at 1221 Avenue of the Americas in Manhattan.

Representing White & Case, Ken Siegal, Tom Doughty and Lisa Kiell of JLL. An in-house team represented the Rockefeller Group, Ed Guiltinan, senior vice president and head of leasing in New York, and Cushman & Wakefield brokerage team led by executive vice chairman John Cefaly.

“White & Case considered many locations throughout Manhattan, and their decision to lease space in 1221 affirms the desirability of midtown, and specifically the Avenue of the Americas,” Guiltinan said in a release.

The building is currently about 80 percent occupied, Guiltinan , told Commercial Property Executive, and the White & Case will have no effect on that. “We were able to structure this deal to terminate McGraw Hill’s lease early at the time that enabled us to meet White & Case’s timing. We currently have a lot of activity that would bring the building to full occupancy.” White & Case will initially take nine floors, but also has the right to increase to 9.5 or 10 floors for their initial space, he added.
