Schulte Roth & Zabel’s Manhattan landlord asked a New York state court judge Jan. 8 to dismiss the firm’s lawsuit seeking a $10 million rent abatement, lambasting the firm for seeking a windfall amid the COVID-19 pandemic in spite of the fact that its office is open and can operate at full capacity.

Schulte is one of several law firms—including Simpson Thacher & Bartlett and Jenner & Block—that have battled their landlords in court since the start of the pandemic as they’ve shifted to remote work. But SL Green Reality Corp., owners of 919 Third Avenue, said Schulte’s suit lacks merit.
