Verrill’s New Connecticut Office Focuses on Future and Function

February 4, 2020 Press Releases

(February 4, 2020) – Verrill is pleased to announce its new Connecticut location, at 355 Riverside Avenue, Westport, which offers more space for collaboration and client meetings, while remaining centrally located in the southwest Connecticut corridor.

The new space better meets the office’s increased demand for advanced technology, common spaces, shared workspaces, and conference rooms to facilitate productive exchanges of ideas and increased level of client service.

“Our firm and the legal profession have both evolved significantly over the past few years, and will continue to evolve in the future,” noted Barbara Young, Partner-in-Charge of Verrill’s Connecticut office. “This new space not only meets our needs today, but also positions us strategically for the future. We are proud of our award-winning client service and high quality legal counsel – this new space brings a refreshed energy to our Connecticut team and allows us to continue to grow and meet the legal needs of our business and individual clients.”

The new office space is comprised of approximately 15,000 square feet, with space for 30 professionals, a board room, training center and conference rooms, together with open collaborative spaces. Prior to Verrill leasing space, the building was completely renovated by the owner, Baywater Properties, and provides advanced technological capabilities as well as offering easy access to MetroNorth and Amtrak, the Merritt Parkway and I-95.

Verrill expanded its reach into southern New England and the New York tristate area when it combined with Connecticut law firm Levett Rockwood in 2015, forming the Connecticut office as it is today. Verrill’s approximately 130 attorneys provide legal services to businesses in such areas as corporate and M&A, commercial litigation, healthcare, intellectual property, employment and labor law, and commercial real estate. The firm also has a robust practice serving the needs of individual clients, particularly in the areas of domestic relations and trusts and estates. In addition to its Connecticut office, Verrill has offices in Boston; Portland and Augusta, Maine; Providence, Rhode Island; White Plains, New York; and Washington D.C.
