Chairman and Managing Partner Paul Tvetenstrand addressing the lawyers and staff at the Opening Day ceremony at Two World Financial Center, September ---, 2003
Thacher Proffitt’s story did not end with the initial recovery, rebuilding, and remembrance. In 2003 the Firm returned downtown and not only downtown, but across the street from where the World Trade Center stood to Two World Financial Center. This symbolic and monumental move represented the Firm’s survival after 9/11 and the strength of Thacher Proffitt & Wood.
