HOME AGAIN Thacher Proffitt & Wood will move into office space in downtown Manhattan on Sept. 2, nearly two years after its offices in the South Tower of the World Trade Center were destroyed in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The new offices at Two World Financial Center overlook the site where, until the attacks, the firm had been located since 1985. “Thacher Proffitt & Wood is over 150 years old, and we spent our life in downtown New York,” says firm chairman Paul Tvetenstrandt. “We really do feel it’s our home.” The firm will hold a ceremony at the new office space with representatives from the New York Fire and Police departments and the law firms that provided space to Thacher Proffitt after it was displaced. Other law firms have been wary of moving back into downtown space: Sidley Austin Brown & Wood, whose offices were also in the World Trade Center, relocated to midtown Manhattan last year. — Marie Beaudette LEADING THELEN The managing partner of Thelen Reid & Priest‘s D.C. office, Andrew Ness, has been reappointed to the firm’s executive committee. The committee is responsible for day-to-day operations of the 425-lawyer firm, implementation of firm growth, and practice management and development. Ness also serves on the partnership council, which sets overall policy for the firm. Ness’ practice focuses on dispute resolution and counseling on construction- and design-related matters. — Jenna Greene FLACK ATTACK Law firm marketing and business consultants Jaffe Associates has added Robert Ambrogi as vice president of editorial services and director of Jaffe’s WritersForLawyers.com.
