London-based Clyde & Co. has poached five lawyers from the insurance coverage group at Roseland, N.J.-based Connell Foley to open an office in the Garden State.
The lawyers—led by Daren McNally—are especially well-versed in policies written by offshore insurers, the New Jersey Law Journal reports.
“Joining Clyde & Co gives the New Jersey team the opportunity to develop its practice at a rapidly growing international law firm with the insurance market at its heart,” McNally told The Lawyer.
Joining McNally at temporary offices in Short Hills, N.J., are partner Barbara Almeida and associates Meghan Goodwin, Matthew Gennaro and Neha Bansal.
