October 16, 2013

Schiff Hardin LLP is pleased to announce that the firm's Washington, D.C., office won the Award of Merit in the Best Interiors Professional Service/Institutional Tenant Space (10,000-25,000 square feet) category from the Maryland/DC Chapter of NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association. Schiff Hardin and Perkins+Will, the architecture firm responsible for the interior office design, received the award October 3, 2013, at the NAIOP Maryland/DC Chapter’s 2013 Awards of Excellence Gala.

Schiff Hardin has occupied this Washington office space—located at 901 K Street NW, Suite 700—since August 2012.

Douglas W. Domenick, Schiff Hardin's Property and Space Manager, was responsible for overseeing the office renovation and worked closely with the Perkins+Will architects.

"Perkins+Will did an outstanding job leading us through the design process and delivering an outstanding space on schedule and on budget. They listened to our needs and designed space that is not only beautiful, but also functions extremely well. We couldn’t be happier."

"This office space demonstrates Schiff Hardin's commitment to the Washington market and to providing our colleagues with the environment to focus on delivering the highest level of service to our clients," said Sherry A. Quirk, coordinating partner of Schiff Hardin’s Washington office.

Schiff Hardin's Washington office was established in 1977 and includes more than 30 attorneys who work closely with the firm's nearly 400 attorneys in seven offices across the U.S. Initially focusing on energy and market regulation work, the Washington office has subsequently grown to include a wide range of corporate and securities, ERISA compliance/ERISA litigation, white collar criminal defense, labor law and intellectual property practices, and an increasing array of other key legal services.
