After working out exactly who from the disbanding litigation boutique McKissock & Hoffman would be joining the firm, Eckert Seamans Cherin & Mellott has said that it has added 22 attorneys across three offices. McKissock & Hoffman name shareholder Peter J. Hoffman has joined Eckert Seamans, along with eight other members and 13 associates. The group’s addition also means a new West Chester office for Eckert Seamans, as all of McKissock & Hoffman’s West Chester attorneys will join the firm. McKissock & Hoffman announced last month that it would dissolve by the beginning of October. Name shareholder J. Bruce McKissock joined Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin, and other firm attorneys went to Burns White & Hickton and Dickie McCamey & Chilcote Eckert Seamans Philadelphia office Member-in-Charge Albert Bixler said 15 attorneys joined the Philadelphia office, five make up the new West Chester site and two joined the firm’s Harrisburg office. In addition to Hoffman, Donald J. Brooks Jr., Timothy J. Burke, John A. Filoreto, Maureen P. Fitzgerald, Eileen Lampe, Jeffrey P. Lewis, Edwin A. D. Schwartz and Christopher Thomson joined the firm as members. Ryan N. Boland, Lauren M. Burnette, Ann B. Cairns, Joseph V. Conroy, Melissa B. Gorsline, Gregory L. Kallet, Richard Kim, Steven E. McCord, Richard J. Mosback Jr., Joan D. Plump, David J. Schertz, David M. Schwadron and Shannon B. Stewart joined as associates. Bixler said the firm recently took additional space in its Two Liberty Place location in Philadelphia and is in the process of acquiring more as the office expands. He said there are 57 or 58 attorneys in the Philadelphia office with another five close by in West Chester. The West Chester area was one place Eckert Seamans had been looking at for possible expansion because it has several clients in the area, Bixler said. For the Philadelphia office, Hoffman and his group not only bring depth to the litigation practice, but they also have a substantial focus on professional liability defense and counseling, Bixler said. That is something the Philadelphia office of Eckert Seamans hadn’t done a lot of in the past, he said.
