NEW YORK, January 8, 2014 - Otterbourg, Steindler, Houston & Rosen, P.C., the New York based law firm best known for its representation of major financial institutions, creditors and other businesses, both within the United States and internationally, has changed its name to Otterbourg P.C.  The firm, founded in 1909, has streamlined its name as it completes a wide-reaching rebranding that includes a new logo, a redesigned website, and totally renovated offices on two floors at 230 Park Avenue. The rebranding represents a combination of the firm’s tradition of excellence with a modern focus on initiatives to enhance client service.

“We are proud of the reputation that Otterbourg has developed over the years in the financial and business community.  Consistent with that reputation, we want to demonstrate our continuing efforts to best position the firm to meet our clients’ changing needs,” said Otterbourg Chairman, Daniel Wallen.  “Our ability to adapt is reflected in the decades-long relationships we maintain with many of our clients. Now, it is also reflected in our new name and logo and the exciting space we have created in an iconic New York City building that combines historical offices with modern design and technology. As we move forward in the firm’s second century, we continue to provide our clients with the highest quality legal work and unparalleled service.”

The new logo, intertwined royal blue ovals forming the letter “O”, illustrates the essential values the firm has held since its founding, including excellence, continuity, teamwork and creativity. Otterbourg’s commitment to these core values has enabled the firm to establish itself as trusted legal counsel to business leaders in its practice areas of banking and finance, litigation and alternative dispute resolution, creditors’ rights and insolvency, corporate and real estate work.

The complete renovation of the Otterbourg offices was done in connection with the signing of a 15-year lease extension at 230 Park Avenue (a landmarked building also known as the New York Central Building), which has been the firm’s home for more than four decades.  The new 45,000-square-foot space on floors 29 and 30 includes completely updated technology that will facilitate the firm’s ability to provide client service at the highest level. The renovated space captures unique views of Park Avenue and combines crisp 21st century architecture with historic wood paneling dating back to 1929, when executives from The New York Central Railroad occupied the space. Studios Architecture and John Francis Borrelli Architect, P.C. collaborated on the design of the renovated space.
