national reputations, and the acquisition will be a significant boost to our
firm’s capabilities, especially in the products liability, employment and
insurance litigation areas,” said Gibbons Managing Director Patrick C.
Dunican, Jr. “The business and cultures of our two organizations are a
perfect fit – and will make this combination successful and provide added

corporations in the areas of employment litigation, counseling and compliance
with federal and state regulations and laws; and eight attorneys to its
Business & Commercial Litigation Department, where they will focus on
insurance litigation and other complex commercial litigation matters.

Brown’s traditional practice areas, such as products liability, employment law
and insurance,” said Stephen J. Imbriglia, Managing Partner of Hecker Brown,
who will now serve as the Administrative Partner-in-Charge of the Gibbons
Philadelphia office. “We’ll also be able to assist our clients in areas such
as intellectual property, real estate, corporate and financial restructuring
and creditors’ rights. More importantly, we’ve associated with a firm of

continue to grow regionally so that our clients will benefit from added
capabilities and experience.”
