A Northeast regional law firm headquartered in Buffalo, N.Y., is opening a new office in London.
Clive O’Connell, who previously served as chief of the commercial risk and reinsurance department at Barlow Lyde & Gilbert, will head the Goldberg firm's new office
Goldberg Segalla managing parnter Richard Cohen says the firm has a large insurance and reinsurance practice, as well as a number of clients in London and Bermuda.
“The way our firm has expanded has been on a very organic basis,” he told Buffalo Business First. “This wasn’t so much a function of needing to be in London right now as it was an opportunity to build a London office around the right person."
The firm focuses its practice on civil litigation for business in a culture that encourages team collaboration, the Goldberg Segalla website explains. It has more than 130 lawyers in 10 offices in New York , Philadelphia and Princeton, N.J.
