New law firm outgrows its space

A two-year-old law firm specializing in mortgage defaults and foreclosures is growing so quickly that it’s already moving to larger space.

Gross Polowy & Orlans LLC, which was started in 2012 by two former attorneys at Steven J. Baum PC, is moving from a suite in the Northpointe Business Park in Amherst to the former home of Howden Fan at the other end of town, said David Schiller of Pyramid Brokerage Co. of Buffalo, who represented the law firm in the lease.

The firm will occupy 23,000 square feet of space at 1775 Wehrle Drive. That takes up the vacancy created when Howden North America’s local unit – originally Buffalo Forge Co. – moved its local aftermarket division with more than 100 employees to 30,000 square feet in the former Quad Graphics building at 2475 George Urban Blvd. in Depew. The former factory is now called the George Urban Business Center owned by Sonwil Corp.’s Peter Wilson and developer Frank Campofelice.

Gross Polowy was created when former Baum attorneys Adam Gross and Amy Polowy teamed up with Michigan-based attorney Linda Orlans. The firm started with 18 attorneys and 47 support staff, mostly from Baum, which had abruptly closed months earlier.
