Expands to Massachusetts, Opening Boston Office
Leading national law firm Wood, Smith, Henning & Berman, LLP (WSHB) is proud to announce the opening of its newest location in Boston, Massachusetts. The firm’s Boston location will provide the firm’s full array of nationwide legal services in both litigated and non-litigated practice areas.
WSHB Partner Christopher Seusing has been selected as the managing partner for the firm's newest location. Seusing called Massachusetts home for many years, first as he earned his undergraduate degree, cum laude, from Stonehill College in Easton, MA, and then as he went on to earn his law degree, cum laude, at Suffolk University in downtown Boston. He honed his litigation skills practicing throughout Massachusetts following his graduation from Suffolk.
“Our impetus for opening in Boston is purely client driven,” said firmwide managing partner Stewart Reid. “Over the years, we have received tremendous results with our bench of lawyers already admitted in Massachusetts. With this step, we are planting our flag firmly to continue growth in this important market.”
“We already have considerable legal work in the New England region and have had repeated requests to increase our local presence,” added Seusing. “We bring a proven trial record of consistent results combined with innovation in handling all facets of matters. The new Boston location will service and complement our existing practice areas including professional liability, catastrophic liability and cybersecurity and data privacy.”
As Seusing assumes the role of New England Managing Partner, he will have responsibility for both the Connecticut and Massachusetts offices. Also admitted in New Hampshire, Seusing is uniquely posed to handle this small but important geographic region. In addition, Seusing is admitted to practice in New York.
“Chris is an experienced commercial and complex litigation attorney who specializes in professional liability, catastrophic liability, and cybersecurity and data privacy matters, said Reid. “He is well-versed in product liability multi-district litigation, mass tort defense and class actions throughout the nation.”
A leader in the firm's cybersecurity and data privacy practice group, Seusing is a regularly published thought leader and sought after speaker on cybersecurity issues. These issues are of increased import in the pandemic, with cyber taking front and center issues for the companies which have moved to remote working environments. In this regard, Seusing is regularly called out for his expertise in both risk management, coverage and handling of cyber related issues.
