Boston-based Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo is giving up its offices in the Connecticut Financial Center at 157 Church St. in downtown New Haven. The firm, which has five attorneys who use the New Haven office on a regular basis, suffered a blow when partner Frank Marco and two other lawyers left to join New Haven's Wiggin & Dana at the end of April. Marco had founded the office in September 2000.
Mintz Levin spokeswoman Gina P. Addis said the firm was at a point in its lease when it had to decide whether to move or stay. "We plan to maintain a presence in Connecticut," she said. "This gives us time to rethink where we want to be." The firm was in the fourth year of a 10-year lease when it exercised an option to move with nine month's notice.
