A Message from Our Chair, Neil Wasser
Constangy Adds Named Partner
Our firm turns 70 next year, and we believe this is the right time to chart a bold course for our next seven decades. The name of our firm has changed two times since my grandfather, Frank Constangy, founded the firm. Today, the name changes again. We are now known as Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLP.
We're pleased to have Donald Prophete and an exceptional group of attorneys join us on the journey ahead. Don is a talented client advocate, formerly of Littler Mendelson. He is a mentor for many lawyers and a friend. Along with our other partners, Don will help our firm continue to grow. It's a great business decision and a historic one as well, as we are adding Don's name to our door. The external change in our name reflects the exciting internal changes at our firm – we're opening two new offices and adopting new technologies as part of our continued commitment to serving our clients in a rapidly changing, diverse world. One of my partners likes to say that it's never a bad time to hire a good attorney – this was an opportunity to do that with all of the lawyers who are becoming part of the Constangy family.
Constangy Expands Footprint
We are excited to be opening a new office in Denver, and it will be led by Jim Goh, along with Steven Moore, both previously shareholders at Ogletree Deakins. The firm is also opening an office in New York, and will name the leadership for that office in the coming weeks.
In addition to the new offices, new partners have joined the firm in Kansas City, Los Angeles and Princeton. Richard Bromley joins the Los Angeles office, coming from Nixon Peabody. Robert Seiger joins the Princeton office, coming from Ogletree Deakins. Prophete will continue to practice in Kansas City, along with Nikki Howell and Nicholas Walker, all of whom were previously at Littler Mendelson.
In addition to the new partners, Glenn Bunting joins the Atlanta office as senior counsel, coming from FordHarrison. Deborah Hembree joins the Birmingham office as an of counsel attorney, coming from Balch & Bingham. Dawn Amos and Jessica Tsuda are joining the Denver office as associates, both coming from Ogletree Deakins. Stephanie Underwood joins the Princeton office as an associate, coming from Locke Lord.
