Marshall Dennehey Combines Forces With Litigation Boutique, Delany Law
Marshall Dennehey announced today that the firm has joined forces with the attorneys and staff of the Philadelphia-based litigation boutique, Delany Law. Helmed by veteran trial attorney Jack Delany, the union brings three shareholders, one special counsel, one associate, two paralegals and an experienced group of support staff to Marshall Dennehey’s Philadelphia and Mount Laurel, New Jersey, offices. All of the attorneys will practice in the firm’s Casualty Department.
“We are delighted to welcome the attorneys and staff of Delaney Law to the firm,” said G. Mark Thompson, Marshall Dennehey’s President & CEO. “Given our complimentary practices and the fact that our lawyers have long known, liked and respected one another, we felt uniting under the Marshall Dennehey umbrella would make us both better. The pairing affords Marshall Dennehey exceptional trial talent and greater bench strength in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey while providing the lawyers and clients of Delany Law the opportunity to capitalize on the resources and efficiencies that we can provide as one of the country’s largest defense litigation firms.”
Jack Delany, founding partner of Delany Law and well-known defense trial attorney in the Philadelphia region, joins the firm’s Philadelphia office as a shareholder. Mr. Delany defends catastrophic, high-profile, high-exposure cases against some of the country’s most formidable plaintiff firms. He has taken to conclusion more than 60 jury trials, as well as hundreds of bench trials, arbitrations and mediations. He has represented many Fortune 500 companies directly and as insureds, and has handled complex litigation matters at the federal and state levels as well as in administrative agencies and alternate dispute resolution forums. Mr. Delany also serves as national coordinating counsel for several product manufacturers.
Andrew Campbell and Kristen Worley also join Marshall Dennehey’s Philadelphia office as shareholders. Mr. Campbell has more than 20 years of experience in civil litigation and insurance defense, with specific focus in the areas of construction, fire and product litigation. Ms. Worley has two decades of litigation and trial experience, representing clients in Pennsylvania and New Jersey in matters involving product liability, personal injury and commercial auto litigation. Andy Ciganek will join the Philadelphia office as an associate. With a strong background in civil litigation, he has successfully handled personal injury, wrongful death, premises liability, aviation, maritime and class action lawsuits.
Lastly, Michael Logue joins Marshall Dennehey as special counsel in the firm’s Mount Laurel office. Mr. Logue is an accomplished personal injury trial attorney, and has obtained successful outcomes in matters involving bodily injury, workers’ compensation and property damage claims.
Mr. Delany commented on the merger. “After 33 great years of running my own firm, the time has come to join forces with a larger firm that can provide the same level of intelligent, innovative resources paired with the solid support that my clients and my employees deserve. That firm, our new home, is Marshall Dennehey, one of the finest legal defense firms in the business for decades. We are thrilled to join this truly amazing team. They have the integrity, the impeccable reputation and the progressive ideals that will move our practice into an exciting new phase of history.”
As of Oct. 31, 2022, Delany Law will close its Philadelphia and Woodbury, New Jersey, offices and its lawyers, paralegals and staff will begin working out of the Marshall Dennehey offices in Philadelphia and Mount Laurel.
