Seven years after Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom vacated 919 Third Ave. for 4 Times Square in New York City, the trend to move westward continues, but primarily for small and midsized non-New York City-based firms in need of bigger and more customized office space.

Hodgson Russ, headquartered in Buffalo, moved 29 lawyers and 14 support personnel to 1540 Broadway and plans to shift the remainder of its staff there from 60 East 42nd St. Chicago-based Seyfarth Shaw and Washington, D.C.’s Covington & Burling, both situated near Rockefeller Center, opted for expanded quarters further west, at 620 Eighth Ave., The New York Times building.
