Dinsmore law firm announced via a press release on Thursday that Anthony Ditka is joining the firm as Managing Partner for the firm’s office in Pittsburgh. Ditka will be responsible for 21 attorneys and 13 professionals and will be taking over the position from James Zeszutek. Zeszutek helped the Pittsburgh office grow from three attorneys since he took over as the firm’s Managing Partner in that city.
Zeszutek will stay with the law firm as a partner. He joined the firm back in 2002 to open the firm’s first office in the state of Pennsylvania. Prior to Dinsmore, Zeszutek worked as the Chairman of Thorp Reed & Armstrong LLP’s Complex Litigation Group.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the growth and energy of our Pittsburgh office, and thank my colleagues for the opportunity to serve,” said Zeszutek. “I know that Anthony will build on our solid foundation and lead us to the next level.”
Ditka departed Thorp Reed back in 2007 to form the Public Finance Group for Dinsmore.
“I’m proud to lead a uniquely talented and strategic group of business lawyers and staff dedicated to client success. The reality in today’s world is that serving clients and practicing law is a team effort, and the Dinsmore team is outstanding. We are all very optimistic about the future ofWestern Pennsylvania,” said Ditka.
