Kilpatrick Stockton Expands Business Litigation Team in New York

Team Leader Relocates to Growing New York Office

NEW YORK (January 5 – LAWFUEL) — Kilpatrick Stockton, a leading international law firm, announced today that it is continuing to expand its highly-regarded Complex Business Litigation Team in New York. Mike Crisp, Chair of Kilpatrick Stockton’s Complex Business Litigation Team, has relocated from the firm’s Atlanta office to its growing New York office. The firm has already added several business litigation lawyers to its New York office in recent weeks and expects to add more in the near future.

The Complex Business Litigation Team, with nearly 70 lawyers in the firm’s Atlanta, New York, North Carolina and Washington offices, will remain fully integrated with the practice’s leader in New York.

“Kilpatrick Stockton has established a national reputation for success in complex business cases,” said partner Mike Crisp. “Many of our largest and most high-profile trials and cases in recent years have been in the Northeast and we see that trend continuing. Particularly in financial services and class action litigation, we have been very successful in 2008 competing for significant cases in the New York market against larger firms. A stronger presence in New York for the Complex Business Litigation Team positions us geographically to compete aggressively for additional business and to handle it even more efficiently. In the current economic climate all companies are redoubling efforts to control litigation costs and to get better value and service from the outside litigation counsel they hire. With our team’s focus on great client service and delivering the highest quality work at a reasonable price, now is an ideal time to focus our energies on New York and doing so enhances both our level of service to existing clients and our ability to serve new clients.”

“There are enormous opportunities for Kilpatrick Stockton in New York,” said Bill Dorris, Kilpatrick Stockton Co-Managing Partner. “We have a very successful and well-known trademark and copyright litigation practice in New York and we are aggressively moving to build on that success by recruiting top talent to our New York office in other important areas. Relocating the leader of our Complex Business Litigation Team to New York energizes that effort and advances the firm’s strategic plan for the litigation practice and the New York office. It will immediately create even stronger connections between New York and our other offices and generate new business opportunities. The New York office is critical to our business litigation practice, to the firm and to serving our clients.”
