The collapse of the 1,300-attorney law firm of Dewey & LeBoeuf continues to create opportunities for others as the firm continues to proceed with Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Dewey used to run an office in Albany, New York, the capital of the state. On Monday, the law firm of Cullen and Dykman , from Brooklyn, opened its doors at the former home of Dewey in the state’s capital. In related news, the law firm has decided to move its headquarters to Wall Street.

Cullen and Dykman was created in 1850 and its primary offices are in New York City’s metropolitan area. The firm hired two attorneys formerly of Dewey. Those two attorneys are Greg Nickson and Brian FitzGerald. The two were hired for the new Albany office. The firm also operates an office in Washington, D.C.


“We have boxes everywhere, as you can imagine,” said FitzGerald. FitzGerald used to be the head of the Albany energy practice for Dewey and is working to hire a support staff for the new law firm he works for. “It will be exciting to grow here. We see a lot of opportunity,” FitzGerald said about his new job opportunity that will see him in the same office.

“Brian FitzGerald’s strong background and demonstrated record of providing his clients with creative and expert legal services will provide the firm with an outstanding base in Albany as it expands to provide integrated legal services throughout the region,” said Robert Sorge, head of Cullen and Dykman’s Corporate Department.
