March is off to a roaring start at Kaufman & Kahn with new offices and an anniversary. Effective March 1, 2018, we moved to the following address (which is very similar to our prior address, but even closer to Grand Central Terminal):
708 Third Avenue, 19th Floor
New York, NY 10017 U.S.A.
Our phone number, website, and email addresses have stayed the same.
We defied the odds in finding a new office within two blocks of our old office (even closer to our commutes from outside of the city), but we’ve been defying the odds for 11 years now.
I first met Rob Kahn as an adversary in a lawsuit. On the way back from court we started talking about other work we were doing, and for the next several years we would bounce ideas off each other. I eventually told him that if he wanted to stop working for other people and work with someone else, I thought we could work together.
Despite the publicity about Big Law, you may be surprised to learn that most attorneys (at least in New York State and perhaps throughout the U.S.) are small firms and solo practitioners. Rob and I have been enjoying it and been successful enough that we want to continue. Sure, there’s a reason we still call it “work,” and someday we’ll retire, I suppose. But it’s nice to be nimble, and to catch your own fish.
Having just moved into our brand new offices — surrounded by boxes and workers still installing cables through the suite — I have to say thank you to our friends and clients. I feel truly blessed to enjoy what I do, and you help to make it enjoyable. As for our anniversary, Rob and I might go out for a beer sometime in the next few evenings to celebrate, if we can find the time…
