New York, NY (PRWEB) January 30, 2008
The New York lawyers at Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP are proud to welcome four new attorneys to the Firm's New York City office: David E. Montgomery, Scott St. Marie, and Thomas F. Giordano, who were all previously with the law firm of Sacks Montgomery, PC, and Allison A. Snyder, who was previously of counsel with Lester Schwab Katz & Dwyer, LLP. The Firm is also adding one paralegal and three staff members who were previously employed with Sacks Montgomery. The Sacks Montgomery firm, which was a nine-lawyer firm specializing in construction and surety law and in general commercial litigation, practiced for 40 years with offices in New York City and Westport, Connecticut. While the firm was highly successful, very much in demand, and very well-regarded in its areas of practice, its lawyers made the difficult decision to close the firm at the end of 2007 and to bring their clients and personnel to a larger firm setting with a greater array of services to offer their current clients.
"We are really pleased to welcome New York attorneys David, Scott, and Tom aboard," said Schnader Chairman Ralph Wellington. "I think that their experience, talent, and skill are a tremendous addition to Schnader - particularly their background in construction and surety law, as well as general commercial litigation - and I think they will be a wonderful complement to our Firm's litigation practice, particularly to our business litigation practice group."
Mr. Wellington continued, "We are also very pleased to have Allison join us as a member of our Litigation Services Department. Her background in products liability, premises liability, and labor law matters will be a wonderful addition to our team of litigation lawyers."
These additions reflect Schnader's on-going effort to pursue strategic, targeted growth, building upon the Firm's traditional strengths in complex litigation and commercial transactions. The addition of these new attorneys supports the Firm's objectives in providing comprehensive services for its clients, and in adding key areas of expertise in each of its offices.
