Providence, Rhode Island.

For the second time in six months, an Am Law 200 firm is setting up shop in Rhode Island.

McElroy, Deutsch, Mulvaney & Carpenter, one of the largest firms in New Jersey, announced Monday its opening of an office in Providence, Rhode Island, after hiring Locke Lord litigation partner Paul Dwyer Jr.

At Locke Lord, which Dwyer joined in early 2015 as a result of the firm’s merger with Edwards Wildman Palmer, he directed a national litigation management team for Woonsocket, Rhode Island-based CVS Health Corp., the nation’s largest pharmacy benefits manager.

“This was a unique opportunity to open a new office and realize some client synergies [with McElroy Deutsch],” said Dwyer, noting that his new 275-lawyer firm has a competitive hourly rate structure and is receptive to using alternative fee arrangements. “They’re broad and nimble.”

Dwyer specializes in consumer protection cases, general liability and malpractice litigation and products liability matters in the health care space. He said he expects to continue handling work for CVS, while also representing other clients, such as Hamilton Storage Technologies Inc., a Franklin, Massachusetts-based designer of ultra-low temperature facilities for life sciences samples and other products.
