Announcing the Opening of Our Connecticut Office

March 30, 2015

Wood, Smith, Henning & Berman LLP, a full service and award winning litigation law firm with more than 160 attorneys and offices in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, Nevada, Oregon and Washington, announces the opening of our 17th office in Norwalk, Connecticut. WSHB Partner Michael Coffey will head up the new office located at 40 Richards Ave., Norwalk, CT, 06854, as well as continuing to lead the WSHB New York City office that opened in November 2013.

“Our Connecticut office is the sixth addition in five years as WSHB continues to be one of the fastest growing law firms in the country.” said Daniel Berman, founding and managing partner at WSHB. “Serving as an anchor to the Tri-State market of New York, New Jersey and now Connecticut, this new location further allows WSHB to better serve our clients in this region.”

The areas of practice in the new Connecticut office will include construction, toxic tort, professional liability, environmental business, employment and real estate.

“We are thrilled about the addition of the Connecticut location, as it represents a strategic expansion in the greater New York metropolitan area,” said Coffey, managing partner of the firm’s New York office. “We are also confident our clients will appreciate our newly enhanced presence as we continue to bring world-class legal representation to the area.”

Coffey has tried more than 100 cases to verdict. In his practice, Coffey focuses on the defense of professional liability, general liability and casualty, and commercial litigation matters. Representing Fortune 500 companies and some of the world’s largest insurance carriers in the U.S., Coffey has extensive experience in state and federal courts in both New York and Connecticut. He was a two-term Norwalk City Council President, and a former three-term Fire Commissioner for the City of Norwalk. Additionally, Coffey is currently a member of the City of Norwalk Zoning Commission.
