Freeborn & Peters LLP and Hargraves, McConnell & Costigan P.C. announce combination
Freeborn & Peters LLP reports that it has combined with the New York City firm of Hargraves, McConnell & Costigan P.C. The move establishes Freeborn’s first office in New York and represents a further geographic expansion for the Chicago-headquartered Freeborn, which last year combined with the Richmond, Va.-based Brenner, Evans & Millman P.C.
"The combination with Hargraves, McConnell & Costigan P.C. advances Freeborn’s strategy of geographically expanding its strongest practice areas...through Hargraves’ strong reputation in the insurance and reinsurance industries in litigating and arbitrating disputes arising out of both domestic and international contracts," according to a Freeborn press release.
The combination was complete on March 1, 2017, and gives Freeborn four offices: Chicago; Springfield, Ill.; Richmond, Va.; and New York.
