Seminars being offered.

In a unique step for an office building, The Lincoln Building will co-sponsor with Fleet Bank a series of complimentary Continuing Legal Education (CLE) programs for law firm tenants, according to Kevin Driscoll of Helmsley Spear Inc., the building's general manager.

The seminars, which will run between Oct. 16 and Nov. 20, will touch on aspects of business development and financial management. The program schedule follows:

* Oct. 16 -- Basic Accounting Concepts (Presented by the accounting firm Berdon LLP)

* Oct. 30 -- Business Development for the Small to Medium-Sized Law Firm (Presented by Arthur Levin, president of AGL Associates)

* Nov. 20 -- Reading and Understanding Financial Statements, Advanced (Presented by the accounting firm Berdon LLP)

All three seminars are CLE-Certified, and count towards continuing legal education credits required by the New York State Bar Association.

"This is a very useful service for law firm tenants in our building," says Driscoll. "To my knowledge it's the first time any building has ever done something like this for its tenants, and we expect it to be very popular with the more than 130 law firms that have leased space here. "Later on, we hope to work with' Fleet Legal Services, which is also a tenant of the building, on other projects that will bring value to our tenants," he adds.

"Fleet Bank is well qualified with a distinct set of products and services that meet the needs of the legal community," says Glenn Crisafi, senior vice president of Fleet Legal Services. "We at Fleet Legal Services have a dedicated team of financial experts who focus solely on the legal profession. Offering CLE and other educational seminars is just one way we meet our clients' needs."

All of the seminars will be held in the Lincoln Building's conference center, which was completed last year as part of the building's $30 million improvement program. The conference center, which seats about 35, is available to all tenants of the Lincoln Building on a reservation basis.
