A&O adds litigation in New York expansion drive

Allen & Overy is launching a US litigation practice in New York. The firm has hired a partner and senior litigation counsel as the first step in building the new practice.
Trial lawyer Michael Feldberg has joined from New York firm Schulte Roth & Zabel, where he was a partner and chair of the litigation department. Former Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft partner Pamela Rogers Chepiga will also join the magic circle firm. Most recently she has been teaching at Fordham University School of Law in New York.
New York senior partner Dan Cunningham said: “The foundation of a US litigation practice is another important step towards achieving our objective of providing the full range of US capabilities to our clients around the world. Michael and Pam's years of experience provide an excellent starting point from which we will further build this practice.”
