Patrick C. Dunican Jr., managing director of the Newark, NJ-based firm of Gibbons, Del Deo, Dolan, Griffinger & Vecchione, P.C., recently announced the opening of a Philadelphia office and the naming of veteran Philadelphia lawyer David W. Marston and Gibbons director Timothy S. Susanin to lead the effort. The firm's new office is located at One Logan Square.
"When several of our major clients urged us to open an office in Philadelphia, we became convinced of the great opportunities offered by this city," Mr. Dunican said.
"The Gibbons name is already known in the Philadelphia legal market, due to, among other things, John Gibbons' service on the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit for 20 years. Our initiative is bolstered by the strong local ties that Dave Marston and Tim Susanin have in this community, and we are delighted to have them spearhead this endeavor."
Mr. Marston previously opened and headed the Philadelphia office of Buchanan Ingersoll and more recently was a partner at Reed Smith, where he headed its corporate section in Philadelphia, New Jersey and New York. He also served as U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, appointed by President Ford, and was a Republican candidate for mayor of Philadelphia.
Mr. Susanin is a Gibbons director and member of the Business & Commercial Litigation Department. He was previously an assistant U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia and was also detailed to the Office of Independent Counsel for the Whitewater investigation.
