Midsize defense firm Weber Gallagher Simpson Stapleton Fires & Newby is bolting on a group of retail-focused lawyers in New York, and has relocated to a new office in the city to accommodate growth.

The six-lawyer team in Manhattan comes from Ropers Majeski Kohn Bentley, a midsize business law firm based in Silicon Valley. Partner Scott Bermack leads the group and will become the managing partner of Weber Gallagher’s New York office, now at 1500 Broadway in Times Square.
