Deeb Blum Splits, Partners Join Anderson Kill, Shook Hardy
Hans said her firm is very much in rebuilding mode in Philadelphia and called the addition of the Deeb Blum group "a springboard to expand even further."
Kansas City, Mo.-based Shook Hardy, on the other hand, is a relative newcomer to Philadelphia, having opened an office there last year with the addition of Dechert partner Sean Wajert.
D'Amore said the firm is a "beast when it comes to products liability" defense.
With the addition of Blum, who focuses his practice on complex and commercial litigation, the Philadelphia office will now have six attorneys.
Neither Blum nor Wajert returned calls seeking comment.
In a firm press release, Wajert said the addition of Blum "will add depth and dimension" to the firm.
