PHILADELPHIA, PA – March 27, 2007 – LAWFUEL – Law Firm News – Seeger Weiss LLP, one of the nation’s leading plaintiffs’ law firms, announced today the opening of a Philadelphia office with the addition of three Philadelphia class action attorneys.
Jonathan Shub has joined the Philadelphia office of Seeger Weiss as the resident partner, and TerriAnne Benedetto and Scott Alan George have joined as associates. The three practiced together at another Philadelphia firm prior to joining Seeger Weiss.
Chris Seeger, a founding partner of Seeger Weiss, said, “We’re very pleased and excited about this opportunity. We’ve enjoyed a long and productive relationship with Jon, and feel that his demonstrated success in consumer class actions is a perfect fit for our expanding mass torts and class action practices. We’re thrilled to have him head up our Philadelphia office and to have TerriAnne and Scott join our firm.” Shub echoed Seeger’s sentiments, stating, “I’ve felt for some time that Seeger Weiss’ unique stature among the mass torts and class action bars would provide the perfect platform for me to grow my practice. I’m looking forward to joining this talented group of lawyers.”
The addition of Shub’s practice group buttresses Seeger Weiss’ active class action practice. Seeger Weiss currently serves as lead counsel in several class actions, including the third payor litigation against Merck pending in New Jersey that has been certified as a nationwide class action. Shub currently serves as lead counsel for consumers in numerous national cases. He has been lead counsel in more than a dozen cases over the past decade, including consumer actions against HP, Palm, Maytag and IBM. In recognition of his efforts, Shub has been selected as a “Superlawyer” by his peers in Philadelphia for the past three years.
Seeger Weiss, based in New York City’s Financial District, also has offices in Newark, NJ and Tulsa, OK. The firm made national news earlier this month after obtaining a $47.5 million jury verdict against Merck & Co. in a 7-week Vioxx-related trial in Atlantic County, N.J
