New Jersey partner Dennis LaFiura has taken the helm as the chairman of the Executive Committee. Hartford and Washington, DC Energy partner David Doot has also joined the firm's four-member Executive Committee, which manages the firm.

Mr. LaFiura, a nationally recognized attorney with a focus on Franchise Litigation, was re-elected to a three-year term. "This is an exciting time to be leading a law firm," Mr. LaFiura said. "The past year has been tough for law firms and the economy has yet to fully rebound, but we are beginning to see positive signs and look forward to setting our sights on growth."

Mr. Doot is the newest member of the firm's Executive Committee, which also includes Judith Babinski in New Jersey and Robert Siegel in Hartford. Ms. Babinski focuses her practice on real estate development matters and Mr. Siegel is a partner in the Corporate and Business Law department. Mr. Doot will also serve a three-year term.
