Harter Secrest & Emery has completed the move of its Buffalo office across Fountain Plaza, giving it more room to accommodate its growth.
The Rochester-based firm, which has 26 attorneys plus professional staff in Buffalo, moved from its longtime home at 12 Fountain Plaza into 15,000 square feet of remodeled space on the 10th floor of 50 Fountain Plaza, formerly the KeyCenter until KeyBank moved out.
The firm opened its Buffalo office in 1995 with three attorneys. It had been in its prior location on the fourth floor of the Bank of America Building for the past 13 years.
“We wanted a space that simultaneously reflected our firm’s culture, allowed us to consistently meet the demands and expectations of our clients, and met our business needs and vision for growth in Buffalo,” said John G. Horn, partner in charge of the firm’s Buffalo office. “We were able to meet all of those key requirements in one of downtown Buffalo’s premier business venues.”
He cited the “ongoing business and economic renaissance” in Buffalo – especially from the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, growing entrepreneurship, international investment and interest, and renewed business confidence “like never before” – as creating “additional strategic opportunities” to encourage further growth for the firm.
