Connecticut-based Shipman & Goodwin LLP announced this week the expansion of their Washington office with the addition of eight insurance lawyers from Drinker Biddle & Reath. The group of attorneys is led by John Hockenbury and Douglas Mangel. The other six lawyers of the group include Joseph Bailey, Janet McFadden, Alex Karam, Ingrid Smith, Nena Mashaw and Michelle Beecy.
The group will continue to represent their former clients in complex matters arising while they were with their former law firm, including matters of professional liability insurance policies, hedge fund, private equity and general partnership liability policies.
Speaking on the arrival of the group to the law firm’s Washington office, Scott Murphy, the Managing Partner of Shipman & Goodwin said, “We are delighted to welcome John Hockenbury and Doug Mangel and their highly accomplished team to Shipman & Goodwin … The addition of these experienced attorneys exemplifies our commitment to expanding the reach of our existing national insurance practice and we are extremely excited about our potential for growth in this area.”
On his part, Hockenbury said, “Shipman & Goodwin is the right platform for our practice … We join a strong existing national insurance practice led by Jim Ruggeri, Partner-in-Charge of the D.C. office, and also gain talented colleagues in Connecticut who will allow us to grow the business and continue to provide first-rate service to our clients on a national basis.”
