Albany-based law firm Tully Rinckey has opened its first Manhattan office, which will be led by John Doherty, who was hired by the firm earlier this year.
Tully Rinckey touted the new office, based in midtown Manhattan at Third Avenue and 49th Street, as part of an effort to better serve current corporate clients and attract future ones, including in the national and international financial services industry.
The firm also announced plans to open its first international office in Dublin, Ireland, before the end of 2017 as it aims to establish itself in global markets.
The new office in New York City adds to the firm’s five offices in upstate New York, as well as its offices in San Diego and Washington, D.C.
“This is only the beginning of our growth in New York City,” the firm’s founding partner, Mathew B. Tully, said in a statement Monday. “Having an arsenal of 77 attorneys throughout the firm billing at much lower hourly rates than our New York City competitors, is something that will set us apart from Am Law firms in midtown.”
Tully Rinckey’s new Manhattan office marks the latest expansion for the firm. In late 2015, the New York Law Journal reported that Tully Rinckey opened an office near Binghamton—a move that broadened Tully Rinckey’s presence in the Southern Tier region of New York.
The Tully Rinckey outpost in Manhattan will be helmed by Doherty, whose practice the firm acquired earlier this year. As managing partner, Doherty will play a lead role in the firm’s corporate practice, Tully Rinckey said. The office will start with 14 employees.
