PITTSBURGH – Nov 7, 2019 – Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney has officially moved the firm’s headquarters and nearly 350 employees into its new home in Pittsburgh’s iconic Union Trust Building. The firm, which is the building’s largest tenant, announced the intent to move in May 2017.
“We could not be happier with our new space in the Union Trust Building,” said Joseph A. Dougherty, Buchanan’s CEO and Managing Director. “We engineered our space to echo who we are as a firm. The layout and technology promote teamwork, creative problem solving and enable us to deliver exceptional service and value to our clients.”
“As is the trend with many law firms today, we have sought to maximize space by standardizing and reducing the size of each attorney office, regardless of title, and creating more collaboration areas, which allow for varying needs and styles of working,” added Dougherty.
The Union Trust Building, designed by Frederick Osterling for Henry Clay Frick and built in 1915 underwent a $100 million design and technology transformation by The Davis Companies over a two-year period. The 500,000 square-foot architectural landmark boasts a 150-foot high rotunda with an original stained-glass skylight, a 70-seat conference facility, a 400-seat auditorium and a host of other amenities for the tenants and the public.
