K&L ON THE MOVE The D.C. lawyers and staff at Kirkpatrick & Lockhart are getting a new home, but will have to wait awhile for it. The Pittsburgh-based firm has signed a letter of intent to take 155,000 square feet in the planned building at 1601 K St., N.W., in 2006. The new offices, which will house up to 186 lawyers and include an option to lease space for as many as 300 attorneys, are compatible with the firm’s expansion plans, says D.C. administrative partner R. Charles Miller. More than 130 lawyers work in Kirkpatrick’s 110,00-square-foot location at 1600 Massachusetts Ave., N.W., but the firm hopes to grow to at least 165 lawyers by its January 2006 move-in date, Miller says. CB Richard Ellis represented Kirkpatrick & Lockhart in the deal with landlord JBG Cos. — Lily Henning NEW YORK, NEW YORK Arent Fox Kintner Plotkin & Kahn is expanding its New York office space by a third in one of its first steps toward a goal of raising the firm’s head count there from 54 to 100 lawyers. The 260-lawyer firm took on 86,000 square feet at 52nd Street and Broadway, with an option to lease more space in the future. Arent Fox opened its doors in New York in 1991 with nine lawyers. Chairman Marc Fleischaker says the New York office, which added a seven-attorney financial restructuring group in January, has contributed significantly to the firm’s profitability in the last two years. — L.H.
