Pastore Osterberg LLC Joins Forces with Fox Rothschild LLP

Thursday, March 26, 2009

Combination Adds Office in Stamford, Connecticut

Philadelphia, PA – Pastore Osterberg LLC is joining forces with Fox Rothschild LLP effective April 1, 2009. The combination serves to expand Fox Rothschild’s reach to Stamford, Connecticut – adding a 15th office to the firm’s growing national platform.

"This is a tremendous opportunity to continue our strategic growth by expanding into one of the fastest-growing business centers on the East Coast with attorneys who are highly regarded in the marketplace," said Mark L. Silow, Fox Rothschild’s Administrative Partner. "The addition of Joe Pastore and Eric Osterberg, leaders in their fields of securities, technology and intellectual property litigation, is a natural extension of our New York office capabilities. We’re extremely pleased that Joe, Eric and their team will be joining Fox."

"Fox Rothschild’s track record of successful geographic expansion and commitment to supporting our growth and development were key to our decision," said Joseph Pastore, co-founder of Pastore Osterberg LLC. Pastore will serve as the office managing partner for the Stamford office. "We were courted by a variety of firms, but only Fox Rothschild offered us the autonomy we desired combined with the strength of a national firm."

Pastore Osterberg was formed from attorneys previously associated with Dreier LLP’s Stamford, Connecticut office. The office’s main practices include securities, intellectual property, information technology, telecommunications, litigation and real estate law. Joining Pastore and Osterberg in the Fox combination will be special counsel Regina M. Flaherty; of counsels William Dailey, Leanne Murray Shofi, Jennifer Shufro and Robyn Sandak; and associates Frances Codd Slusarz and Paul R. Dehmel.

"Stamford has established itself as a hub of financial and securities-related industries," said Osterberg, who focuses on intellectual property litigation. "This combination offers us the capability to better serve the Stamford market and to build our business on a national level in areas that see growth even during an economic downturn. Fox Rothschild was the right firm for us, and we are excited about what’s ahead."

The attorneys will remain at their current office location and expect to expand their ranks to become a full-service office.
