Regional law firms Carmody & Torrance L.L.P. and Sandak Hennessey & Greco L.L.P. have combined beginning immediately. The move strengthens the local presence of the larger Carmody & Torrance , with its roots in Waterbury.
With the addition of the 15 attorneys from Stamford-based Sandak Hennessey & Greco, the combined 77-attorney firm, in the words of a statement announcing the merger, “will have regional experience and reach throughout Connecticut and the Northeast.”
Carmody Torrance Sandak & Hennessey L.L.P. – its name since Jan. 1 – now has offices in New Haven, Stamford, Waterbury and Southbury.
The deal was led by Carmody & Torrance’s managing partner Brian T. Henebry, who will continue to serve as managing partner, and by Jay H. Sandak, the founding partner of SHG.
Greco of SHG will lead the combined firm’s personal injury practice area, continuing to serve clients statewide.
“SHG’s extensive experience in commercial real estate, zoning and land use, and litigation together with its relationships throughout Fairfield County, makes it a natural fit for Carmody & Torrance,” said Henebry. “Our firm has been looking for the right match within Fairfield County, and we knew this was it. Both firms share the same focus: achieving the clients’ objectives, getting results and doing so efficiently at a reasonable cost.”
Carmody & Torrance, founded more than a century ago in Waterbury specializes in litigation, intellectual property, labor and employment, business and transactional representation, energy and utility, healthcare, municipal law, trust and estates, white collar defense, environmental and alternative dispute resolution practices.
