Nine Attorneys from Established New Jersey Law Firm Join Wilson Elser to Lead New Practice Areas

FLORHAM PARK, NJ (January 13, 2016) – National law firm Wilson Elser announced the launch of several new practices, including Trusts & Estates, Tax Planning & Controversies, Wealth Preservation and Family Law, with the addition of nine new attorneys from established New Jersey law firm Lampf, Lipkind, Prupis & Petigrow.

Effective January 1, 2016, the attorneys joined Wilson Elser’s New Jersey office in Florham Park. The team includes partners William Lipkind, Neil L. Prupis, Sheila Tarabour, Thomas A. Gentile and Andrew M. Epstein; of counsel Elizabeth Gasser and Tammy Meyer; and associate Adam Buchwalter.

“This is an exciting time for us,” said Daniel J. McMahon, Wilson Elser chairman. “After expanding our geographic footprint with four new offices over the past 12 months, this significant addition of nine attorneys from Lampf Lipkind enhances our capabilities in the corporate law area and further increases the breadth and depth of our service offerings to clients.”

In addition to focusing on new practice areas, members of the group also work within a number of the firm’s well-established practices, including employee benefits and ERISA, health care law and general litigation, serving clients – individuals and businesses – located throughout the country.

“The experienced attorneys from Lampf Lipkind have well-deserved reputations for providing innovative resolution of extremely challenging matters – whether related to individuals’ tax and wealth preservation or business tax issues, transactions and/or litigation,” said Carolyn O’Connor, regional managing partner of Wilson Elser’s New Jersey office. “We look forward to fully integrating them into the Wilson Elser family and realizing the synergies these new practices and attorneys will create for our clients today and into the future.”
