Gordon & Rees Opens 20th National Office in Hartford, Broadening Its Northeastern Presence with Fourth Regional Office

On July 5, 2011, the AmLaw 200 law firm of Gordon & Rees continued the expansion of its national platform with the opening of an office in Hartford, Connecticut. The Hartford office is the third office opened by the firm in 2011, and its 20th office overall.  With existing offices in New York City, Long Island, and Florham Park, New Jersey, the Hartford office will further broaden Gordon & Rees's northeastern presence with a fourth location.

The Hartford office is led by veteran trial litigator, Dennis Brown, who joins Gordon & Rees from Edwards Angell Palmer & Dodge.  Mr. Brown has a well recognized and established career in litigation, having handled and tried numerous complex, high-stakes engagements (including class actions) in the areas of insurance bad faith, products liability, commercial and environmental claims, among others. 

"Opening an office in Hartford is a natural strategic fit for the firm given the city's prominence in the financial services and insurance arenas," explained Firm Managing Partner, Dion Cominos, "and Dennis brings the perfect combination of widespread industry contacts and superb lawyering skills.  He's also a great guy, and will meld seamlessly into our culture." 

Mr. Brown seconded the firm's enthusiasm, noting that, "I have had the pleasure of working with Gordon & Rees lawyers on a number of engagements, and found their level of professionalism and camaraderie to be unparalleled.  I'm very excited to be leading the firm's efforts in Hartford, and look forward to a long and productive relationship together."

In its brief 37 year history, Gordon & Rees has grown into a standout national litigation and business transactions firm with more than 440 lawyers in 20 offices throughout the United States.  Every year, the firm has advanced in the AmLaw 200 and NLJ 250 rankings, and is currently ranked #154 in the AmLaw 200 and #122 in the NLJ 250.
