Barnes & Thornburg has added eight prominent lawyers, consultants and staff in Delaware, including partners Thomas McGonigle, Shawn Tucker and Michael Maimone.
Top-level government relations consultants Mary Kate McLaughlin and Doug Gramiak are joining the firm, along with Michael DeNote as of counsel, Sawyer Traver as an associate and Whitney Potts as a paralegal.
Joining from Faegre Drinker, the group brings decades of experience and a deep understanding of Delaware’s critical role in corporate law, business disputes, and financial services, along with public policy and political issues. McGonigle is the partner in charge of the office and will participate on the firm management committee.
“This is an impressive group that knows Delaware and its place of prominence in legal and business matters across the country and around the world,” said Robert T. Grand, managing partner. “We’re excited to continue to invest in the First State, as growing in Delaware is a key strategic priority for our firm. We believe these new additions also will fit nicely into our broader growth strategy, including our continued expansion in New York.”
