Cooley has relocated its Washington offices to the historic Warner Building on Pennsylvania Avenue.
The firm is taking 87,000 square-feet in the 13-floor building at 1299 Pennsylvania Avenue N.W., an increase of about 20,000 square-feet compared with its old space in D.C.'s Chinatown neighborhood.
The firm established a D.C. office in 2005, and it has since outgrown its old space at 777 6th Street N.W. At the end of 2011, Cooley had 53 attorneys in Washington, according to the Legal Times 150 survey. The firm's website now lists 85 attorneys, not including staff attorneys and patent agents.
"With this move to the Warner Building, Cooley gains an office identity that reflects our strong Washington, DC presence and accommodates our future growth plans," Ryan Naftulin, partner-in-charge of the Washington office, said in a written statement. "Both geographically and architecturally this stunning new space supports the firm's leading practices."
Cooley joins Baker Botts in that space, which formerly housed the now-defunct Howrey.
