Heller Ehrman takes new space in Washington

Heller Ehrman White & McAuliffe has cemented its focus on building its Washington DC base by signing up for new office space. The firm, which has made six lateral hires in Washington since 2002, has signed a lease for 83,000sq ft of space at an office on Rhode Island Avenue, where it will become the primary tenant in the building. Heller Ehrman expects to move its 115 attorneys and staff to the space by early 2005.
