Schulte Roth & Zabel has filed suit against its New York landlord, seeking at least $10 million, becoming the latest Am Law 200 firm to dispute its office rent obligations during the pandemic.

Schulte is seeking rent abatement from its landlord at 919 Third Ave., an SL Green property in Midtown. The case is similar to Simpson Thacher & Bartlett and Jenner & Block’s litigation this year against their landlords. The law firm disputes have continued to percolate in the legal industry, as the pandemic and shutdown orders have forced firms to operate remotely.
