Bederson LLP’s litigation team has worked from its own office for more than 10 years, but as of the start of the month the staff is now operating together, from one space.
The full service accounting and advisory firm announced the move of its litigation team from West Orange to the company’s headquarters in Fairfield on May 2.
The consolidation at 100 Passaic Ave. comes as Bederson celebrates 85 years in business. The addition of the 13-person contingent from West Orange brings the Fairfield location’s total headcount to 50. According to the firm, the office is designed to promote efficiency and direct access to its specialized practices.
“Although we have managed two locations, we have always operated as one firm with a shared culture and vision,” Managing Partner Mark Mazza said in a prepared statement. “With this consolidation, we look forward to driving that vision and delivering an even greater level of service with our unified team.”
In Fairfield, a customized space was constructed for the litigation team that connects via a walkway to the firm’s other departments. According to Bederson, the dedicated space allows the unit to operate independently, while also offering immediate access to all its services.
Historically, the litigation team was based in West Orange because its growth dictated the need for more office space. When Bederson relocated its headquarters to a larger office complex, the move afforded enough space to bring the entire team together.
Editor’s note: A previous version of this story indicated that Bederson’s 11-person litigation team moved to the Fairfield office; that was incorrect, the team is comprised of 13 people. The story was updated at 6:01 a.m. EST on May 4, 2022.
