Bradford Allen Represents Deutsch, Levy & Engel in Lease Extension

Chicago, IL – Bradford Allen is pleased to announce that Managing Director Matthew Alexander has completed a lease extension and relocation on behalf of Deutsch Levy & Engel, Chartered (DLEC) at 225 W. Washington Street. The Chicago-based law firm signed a long-term lease extension and will relocate their offices into 14,000 SF of newly designed more efficient modern space on the 13th floor. The new space also provides DLEC with a prominent position on the floor with immediate access to elevators and the flexibility for future growth. DLEC was one of the first tenants to sign a lease in the then newly constructed building in 1986 and have occupied space on the 17th floor for over 30 years. Mark Gunderson and Mark Baby, of Cushman & Wakefield, represented the Landlord.

Deutsch, Levy & Engel was founded more than 50 years ago and serves clients throughout the United States and in many foreign countries. The firm concentrates in the areas of commercial transactions, financing, corporations, litigation, real estate, federal, state and local taxation, estate planning and probate, with a special emphasis on libel and slander law, and First Amendment matters. The firm’s list of clients includes publicly held as well as entrepreneurial and middle market companies engaged in a broad range of activities, financial institutions and state and local governmental agencies.

“This transaction was mutually beneficial for both the tenant and the landlord,” said Alexander. “The Tenant was able to take advantage of the opportunity to right-size their space and construct an office more suited to their current needs. Everyone involved in the project contributed a great deal and were invaluable in making this a successful transaction.”
