Summary: Babst Calland adds four new partners in Charleston office.
The Pittsburgh-based law firm of Babst Calland announced this week that four well-established West Virginia attorneys have joined the firm’s office in downtown Charleston. While Timothy Miller moved over from Robinson & McEIwee, Christopher ‘Kip” Power, Mychal Schulz and Robert Stonestreet came from the Charleston office of Dinsmore & Shohl.
The new partners in Charleston will be providing senior-level legal counsel in key practice areas including environmental, litigation and employment.
Commenting about these lateral moves to the Firm, Chester R. Babst III, managing shareholder of Babst Calland, said, “We are very pleased to welcome these fine individuals to our Firm and to our established team in Charleston. They are a natural fit for us as they share our values, experience and philosophy in serving clients, some with whom we already have business relationships. The addition of these well-regarded West Virginia attorneys supports our strategy to expand Babst Calland’s senior-level legal counseling team and capabilities to serve the needs of existing and new clients in the region.”
“As a litigator who focuses on energy-related law, I am pleased to be joining Babst Calland’s well-established and full-service multi-disciplinary team representing the energy industry,” said Attorney Timothy Miller.
“Along with my colleagues Mychal Schulz and Robert Stonestreet, it is an exciting time for us to join Babst Calland’s West Virginia team and become part of a firm that is grounded in environmental law and where the energy business is a significant force,” said Attorney Christopher “Kip” B. Power.
Among the largest fully-dedicated teams of energy and environmental attorneys in the Appalachian Basin, Babst Calland now has 30 attorneys admitted to practice in West Virginia who have been serving the natural gas, coal and other industries for many years.
Founded in 1986, Babst Calland has represented environmental, energy and corporate clients since its inception.
