CSG Law has committed to creating a new, state-of-the-art headquarters at 105 Eisenhower Parkway in Roseland, approximately five miles away from its longtime West Orange office.
The property is a two-building, four-story office complex that spans 220,000 square feet and was built in 2000. CSG is signing on to occupy the entire North Building, totaling 109,000 square feet.
“One of the most respected law firms in New Jersey, CSG Law is an economic engine, employing 300 people and serving as a corporate anchor in our community,” Essex County Executive Joseph DiVincenzo Jr. said in a statement. “The firm has deep roots in Essex County, which it has called home for half a century. I am proud that when they were relocating their offices, they displayed their commitment to Essex County and chose to remain here.”
“The Borough of Roseland is excited to welcome CSG Law back,” said Roseland Mayor James Spango. “There are many other municipalities in the area that CSG Law could have moved to, but we believe the firm chose to put its roots back in Roseland due to our outstanding location, access to major roadways, and small town charm. Attracting and retaining businesses in Roseland directly attributes to our ability to keep property tax increases to a minimum. We congratulate the firm on its 50th anniversary and hope to have them continue as a member of the Roseland business community for at least the next 50 years.”
With 175 attorneys and more than $90 million in revenues, CSG is the state’s third-largest law firm. The design and build out of a new headquarters “marks an exciting time for CSG Law, which has grown tremendously over the past few years,” said CSG Law Executive Committee Member Jeffrey Chiesa.
The firm recently underwent a rebrand and is celebrating its 50th anniversary.
Renovations are also planned for the lobby, common areas and façade. In addition, the entry road and landscaping will be improved. Gensler has been retained by both CSG and the landlord to manage the work.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Robert Donnelly and Raymond Trevisan represented CSG in the transaction. David Simpson of Newmark represented the landlord, a New York City-based private partnership.
“CSG Law has seen explosive growth over the past five years and this new lease will give them room to continue their expansion,” said Donnelly, executive vice chair of Cushman & Wakefield.
