In what one analyst said is a sign the law industry is rebounding from a recession, another New York City law firm is expanding its practice by opening an office in Stamford, Conn.
Meister Seelig & Fein LLP, a 50-attorney, full-practice Manhattan firm, opened a six-lawyer law office at 201 Broad Street in Stamford earlier this month. Among the six lawyers are former Robinson & Cole attorneys Alex Pencu and Chris Major.
Jeff Weingart, a partner at the New York-based firm, said the firm does significant work in technology and intellectual property and sees an expanding market for those services in Connecticut. "We have an optimistic outlook about the Connecticut office and region in general," he said. "We do plan to grow that office."
