Livingston-based Trenk Isabel P.C. adds 5 attorneys, including 2 name partners

Firm growth includes major expansion of employment, land use, redevelopment, public entity, and commercial litigation practices

Livingston-based Trenk Isabel P.C. on Monday announced it expanded its Livingston-based firm with the addition of five new attorneys.

According to the law firm, the additions nearly double its bench strength, bringing its total number of attorneys to 12, which significantly bolsters its client services and capabilities in areas including commercial and complex litigation; labor and employment; environmental; land use and redevelopment; bankruptcy and restructuring; and public entity law.

Company Directors Richard Trenk and David Isabel have welcomed Asaad Siddiqi and John Shahdanian II as name partners and directors, with the firm from here on out known as Trenk Isabel Siddiqi & Shahdanian P.C., effective Monday.

Also joining the firm are attorneys Reginald Jenkins Jr. and William Rupp as partners and Valentina Scirica as an associate, along with paralegals Cindy Chen and Debby Vida.

“This is an exciting time for our firm, and for our clients, as John and Asaad join not only as tremendous advocates, but also as leaders of our firm,” Trenk said. “We knew of Asaad and John through their outstanding work with the New Jersey State Bar and Bergen County Bar associations and their various leadership roles, and they are a great fit for our firm, further expanding our capabilities in multiple practice and industry areas of particular importance to our clients.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Asaad and John as directors with our firm, as well as Reggie, Bill and Valentina as key members of our growing team of attorneys,” Isabel said. “This was a rare opportunity to expand our services in labor and employment, commercial litigation, land use, public entity and redevelopment spaces, with highly regarded lawyers.”

The new attorneys and paralegals were most recently with Anselmi & Carvelli LLP.
