After separating from global engineering consultant Michael Baker International in late 2020, the firm’s chief legal officer was drawn in by a pitch from a former Duane Morris colleague to join Blank Rome’s commercial litigation practice group.

Edward Gentilcore officially joined the Pittsburgh office of Blank Rome on Aug. 30 in an of counsel role, bringing a background in construction litigation, sustainable building and alternate dispute resolution, the firm announced on Wednesday. Gentilcore had worked at Michael Baker International since January 2019.
