McDermott Will & Emery has officially opened the doors of its new building at 500 North Capitol Street. ...

The new 229,112 square-foot McDermott Building will be home to over 400 D.C.-based lawyers and staff as well as other business and retail outlets.

When it leased space in the building, McDermott Will & Emery LLP was represented by Lois Zambo and Steve London of Studley. ...

McDermott's new home places its lawyers within steps of the U.S. Congress, the Supreme Court, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Federal Trade Commission Annex, the Tax Court, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the Thurgood Marshall Judicial Center Complex, the Library of Congress and Union Station.

Originally built in 1966, the building has been completely redesigned and redeveloped to meet the current and future needs of McDermott. Building upgrades include technology such as new mechanical and electrical systems, elevators, and an entirely new, glass façade. Built to meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Gold standards for energy efficiency and environmental sustainability, the space features natural light, Energy Star-rated equipment and appliances, new furniture with recycled components, and locally sourced building materials.

The office also offers a top-floor conference center, a rooftop terrace with panoramic views of Capitol Hill, an on-site parking garage and prominent exterior signage to reinforce the McDermott brand. ...
