There will be a lot fewer suits walking the streets of Brooklyn Heights. After decades as one of the neighborhood’s preeminent law firms, Cullen & Dykman LLP has vacated the borough. As of Monday, staff at its 177 Montague Street headquarters, above Chase Bank, had relocated to Wall Street, where they will sadly blend in with all the other black and gray stiff collars in downtown Manhattan.
The Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports that Cullen & Dykman has had a secondary office at 44 Wall Street for years, and is now expanding its two floors there with two additional floors, where the Brooklyn staff will be based. A small office at 188 Montague Street office will remain open for the time being “for occasional use,” while the HQ at 177 has been shuttered.
