Sullivan & Cromwell reopens N.Y. office, other downtown firms remain closed

The law firm’s building was submerged in 35 feet of water during Hurricane Sandy

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, New York is beginning to rebuild. The storm shuttered many law firms and courts, but the lights are turning back on now for at least a few Manhattan firms. Notably, on Monday, Sullivan & Cromwell reopened its downtown office near the waterfront.

The firm owns a 60 percent interest in the building, which was submerged under 35 feet of water during Sandy, and now needs to reconstruct three of its sub-levels, which contained a parking garage and a health center, among other things.
