The national law firm of Eckert Seamans Cherin & Mellott, LLC is very pleased to announce Karen S. Elliott and Annemarie DiNardo Cleary have joined the firm as Members in the Richmond office. Elliott is a member of the firm’s Labor and Employment group, and will be leading the group’s efforts in Virginia. Cleary is also part of the Labor and Employment group as well as the Financial Services Litigation practice. They join Eckert Seamans from the Richmond office of Sands Anderson PC.
According to Matthew B. Kirsner, Co-Member-in-Charge of the Richmond office, the firm has a large, prominent labor and employment practice in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., but felt it needed a practice presence in its Richmond office as well.
“Strategic growth in Richmond with laterals of this caliber is a priority for Eckert Seamans,” Kirsner said. “Karen and Annemarie each have a strong track record, and our clients will greatly benefit from their practices. Their clients also dovetail nicely with our existing practices and clients.”
Added David Clarke, Co-Member-in-Charge of the Richmond office, “We are focused on growing our presence in the Virginia market and committed to bringing top-shelf legal talent to serve the needs of our clients here and elsewhere. Karen and Annemarie fit this bill and we could not be more pleased to add them and their well-established practices to our team.”
