“Over the past ten years, the firm has implemented strategic initiatives that continued our tradition of maintaining national litigation  and   business practices across a number of industries and disciplines,” Kassner said. “We will continue to recruit top talent in our existing markets – and perhaps enter others – in order to serve our clients, while at the same time retaining the core values that define us as a firm.”

Three new Executive Partners have been appointed by the firm’s Managing Partners. These Executive Partners will work with Kassner as part of the senior leadership team. The three partners are Mary Devlin Capizzi, Robert C. Juelke and Michael W. McTigue, Jr.

“Mary, Bob, and Mike are leading lawyers in their fields, and have been involved in the firm leadership for a long time.  The Managing Partners asked each of them to assume additional identified day-to -day firm management responsibilities so as to allow Andy to concentrate on firm strategy and growth,” Putnam said.

Kassner came to the firm back in 1986. Kassner holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania and his law degree from New York Law School.
