HFZ Gives Back As Part of Move to New Downtown Offices

Hanley Flight & Zimmerman, LLC this fall changed addresses in downtown Chicago, moving into new offices in the CME Center.

This LEED Gold certified building along the Chicago River was redeveloped in 2020 and features a state-of-the-art fitness center, a 15,400-square foot clubhouse with river views, a lounge, library, bar area, multi-purpose game room, and conferencing areas. The CME Center also houses multiple eating options: a sit-down restaurant with a great view of the river, a convenient walk-up service counter, and a pop-up food stand highlighting food from a rotation of local Chicago chefs and eateries, among other choices.

The move gives our firm a brighter space to work in and new energy as we look ahead to 2024. While HFZ offers hybrid and flexible work options, this new space is ideal for in-person work, conveniently located near all major public transportation lines.

As part of the move, HFZ donated office furniture, a large cache of office supplies, desk chairs, and dry erase boards from its former space to Chicago Hope Academy, a private college preparatory high school on the city’s west side.

Said Gail Clark of Chicago Hope: “We are so appreciative of the donation and the ability to better our spaces for our students because of the generosity of your organization!”

HFZ’s new address is: 10 S. Wacker Dr., Suite 3500, Chicago, IL 60606.

James (Jim) Flight, a founding member of Hanley Flight & Zimmerman, is featured in IAM’s Strategy 300 Global Leaders 2024, a publication that showcases intellectual property professionals who innovate, inspire, and go above and beyond to deliver value for clients

Jim was eligible for inclusion among the Global Leaders because he was chosen to IAM’s Strategy 300 earlier this year through an editorial process that included peer nominations, research and source interviews. From that group, IAM selected its Global Leaders, acknowledging IP professionals from across in-house, private practice, and service provider roles who merit special attention for their expertise and experience in creating, protecting, managing, transacting, and enforcing critical patent rights.

This is the second straight year Jim has been chosen to the Global Leaders list. Also this year, Jim, fellow HFZ founders Mark Hanley and Mark Zimmerman, and the firm were ranked in this year’s IAM Patent 1000, an annual guide to the world’s leading patent law firms and individuals.
