International Who's Who of Business Defence Lawyers
Thomas Fitzpatrick’s firm is located on the 33rd floor of 500 Fifth Ave., a distinguished 59 year old skyscraper designed in 1932, (the heart of the Art Deco period), by Shreve, Lamb, & Harmon Associates, who also designed the Empire State building. The building entrance is on Fifth Avenue, on the west side between 42nd and 43rd Sts., less than two blocks from Grand Central Terminal, and thus readily accessible by both Metro-North Railroad and the 4, 5, 6, 7 and S subway lines. The firm is within two blocks of the Bryant Park/42d Street subway station, serviced by the B, V, F, and D trains. Newark, LaGuardia, and JFK Airports are approximately 30-45 minutes by taxi or limousine service.
