Today, Burleson Cooke announced the addition of three new attorneys, further strengthening the capabilities of the energy law firm’s growing Pittsburgh office.
The three lawyers, Andrew Jenkins, Kevin Barley, and Samuel Stoller, have expertise in a number of key practice areas that will enable Burleson Cooke to deliver a more comprehensive range of services to companies working in the Marcellus Shale, according to Kevin Colosimo, managing partner of Burleson Cooke’s Pittsburgh office.
In the press release at the firm’s website, Colosimo was quoted as saying: “All three have really strong litigation backgrounds. Beyond that, there’s significant experience in environmental and land use law, both of which are important aspects of our full-service litigation practice.”
Kevin Barley joins the firm from Babst, Calland, Clements and Zomnir in Pittsburgh, where he practiced in the Litigation Services and Construction Services Groups. He has represented clients in environmental, construction, energy, and other litigation matters.
Andrew Jenkins joins from Thorp, Reed & Armstrong in Pittsburgh. He will concentrate his practice in the areas of business litigation, energy law, construction law, and business and contract law. He has represented manufacturers, architectural and engineering firms, public entities, and other businesses on issues that include product disputes, personal injury claims, and defective design claims.
Samuel Stoller was most recently with Eckert Seamans Cherin & Mellott in Pittsburgh. His experience includes construction law, breach of contract claims, representing corporate officers in shareholder derivative suits, and real estate disputes.
