DeCotiis, FitzPatrick, Cole & Giblin LLP said that, effective last week, the law firm added 13 new legal professionals, nearly all of the preexisting attorneys from Kaufman, Semeraro & Leibman LLP, including two of its principals.
This expansion provides the Paramus firm with additional expertise in existing practice areas such as complex litigation, labor and employment, land use, real estate and banking, as well as extends the firm’s purview to a new practice area, personal injury law. With more than 100 attorneys and staff, DeCotiis, FitzPatrick, Cole & Giblin said it will continue to exponentially grow its footprint across New Jersey and will add a new location at 90 E. Halsey Road, Suite 385, Parsippany, in Morris County.
Co-Managing Partner Michael DeCotiis remarked on the milestone: “This expansion combines a wide variety of skills and expertise across multiple practice groups that enables DeCotiis to continue to provide sophisticated and comprehensive solutions to our clients in both the public and private sectors. I am incredibly proud to uphold the legacy and continued growth of the firm.”
“As attorneys practicing in New Jersey for over 70 combined years, we are eager to join DeCotiis to expand the resources available to our clients. Our experience with that of DeCotiis means the continued growth of our practice areas and depth of expertise,” Paul Kaufman and Mark Semeraro shared on their joining the practice.
Named Equity Partner Vincent Giblin acknowledged, “The addition of Paul and Mark, along with the seven attorneys joining the firm, will contribute to DeCotiis’ long list of accomplished attorneys barred across the United States, fortifying our national presence and delivering more than exceptional solutions to complex legal problems for our clients.”
In addition to Semeraro and Kaufman, the other new attorneys joining DeCotiis, FitzPatrick, Cole & Giblin are Deena Rosendahl, Justin Santagata, Scott Fahrney, Jaime Placek, Gregory Asadurian, Danielle Federico and Avi Meger.
