As for competitiveness, we have a pretty terrific Web site and pride ourselves in being involved in the community and promoting what we do. . . . There are some firms in the city who come here for economic reasons, to get better rent deals than they could get in the city but their practice remains the same. . . . They become a firm in the city that happens to be in a position to continue their New York City work up here.”
