Finally: Doctors Push Some Lawyers Around

Hard to believe, but true:
Ogletree Deakins will vacate its current D.C. office at 2400 N St. NW.

The labor and employment law firm is on the market for a new space because the owner of its building, the American College of Cardiology Foundation, wants to expand into Ogletree’s space. The nonprofit bought the Class A, 177,380-square-foot building in 2005 for $67 million, according to D.C. tax assessment records.
You've got to love this: our one chance to push around 450 lawyers!

On a more serious note, do fund raising, guideline development, lobbying efforts and scientific meeting organization on behalf of our specialty really require that much space?

Have to go with the American College of Cardiology on this one, Doc. As you may know, the recent healthcare law contained the Congenital Heart Futures Act, which authorizes the Centers for Disease Control to begin classifying and gathering data on both adults and children living with heart defects, and also instructs the National Institutes of Health to fund more research. If not for the folks working out of Heart House, the Act wouldn't have had a chance.
