CSG Law Honored by New Jersey Business & Industry Association with New Good Neighbor Award
Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi PC (CSG Law) is pleased to announce that the New Jersey Business & Industry Association recently honored the firm with a New Good Neighbor award for its new 120,000 SF headquarters at 105 Eisenhower Parkway in Roseland.
“The winning projects, participating in our 63rd Annual New Good Neighbor Awards program, have created more than $346 million in capital improvements, more than 2,200 construction jobs and nearly 5,500 permanent jobs, providing valuable assets and generating tremendous economic activity,” said NJBIA President & CEO Michele Siekerka in an announcement.
Even before the pandemic, the firm – with 300 employees and more than $100 million in annual revenue – had already started to outgrow its former headquarters in West Orange but not its commitment to Essex County and the Garden State itself. While many companies were downsizing and reducing their office needs during the pandemic, CSG Law began to envision the law firm of the future – one that would provide opportunities for collaboration at all levels to best serve our clients. CSG Law leadership felt it was important as we emerged from the pandemic and remote workplace environment to continue to build the firm’s culture: the connective membrane that tethers our team together.
The firm, in partnership with property owner Vision Real Estate Partners, underwrote approximately $30 million in interior and exterior renovations, bringing the former site of Arthur Anderson’s New Jersey office back to life and turning it into a state-of-the-art Class A office center of the future.
“The revitalization of the building, which took place on an expedited timeframe between August and December 2022, created more than 600 on-site construction jobs,” NJBIA said in the announcement. “In addition, an estimated 200 locally based administrative team members supported the management of the project, ranging from the facility’s design and the development of custom furniture, to – among other roles – creating a top-to-bottom technology platform for the future.”
The firm began occupancy of the new building this past December and completed the relocation of its entire team in January. The move created additional jobs for the local economy via the addition of security and concierge jobs, as well as a complete cafeteria and catering team.
Gensler served as the architect on the project and SJP Properties was the builder.
