Duane Morris scoops litigation double from Kirkpatrick & Lockhart

Duane Morris’s New York office has scored two leading litigation experts from Kirkpatrick & Lockhart to lead its newly carved out broker-dealer practice.

Loren Schechter and James Tricarico will co-chair the new national broker-dealer practice at Duane Morris which is aligned with the firm’s trial practice group. As well as time spent at Kirkpatrick, over their careers, both Schechter and Tricarico have worked at Prudential Securities.

Schechter served as general counsel at the company for 10 years while Tricarico also held the general counsel role as well as serving as executive vice president and a member of the firm’s operating council. With the two laterals, Duane Morris’s New York office now houses 75 lawyers.
