Chicago-based law firm Katten is relocating its Manhattan offices to a large spread at Rockefeller Center.

The company — formed out of the 2002 merger between Chicago’s Katten Muchin & Zavis and New York’s Rosenman & Colin — signed a lease for 125,000 square feet at Tishman Speyer’s 50 Rockefeller Plaza, the law firm told The Real Deal.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Katten and its 200 employees will relocate from their current offices at 575 Madison Avenue, which is owned by the estate of real estate mogul and philanthropist Harold Derfner.

Chris DiAngelo, managing partner of Katten’s New York office, said the move to 50 Rock will help the firm “draw and retain top talent.”

The law firm will move into five floors at the 15-story building beginning next spring.

A Cushman and Wakefield team of John Cefaly, Robert Lowe, Jon Herman and Evan Algier represented Katten in negotiations. Tishman, which is also Katten’s landlord in Chicago at 525 West Monroe Street, represented itself in-house.

Other tenants at 50 Rock include the investment firm Rockefeller Capital Management, which inked a 15-year lease for 65,000 square feet in the building last year.
