We have expanded our Washington, D.C. office with the addition of eight insurance attorneys, all formerly with Drinker Biddle & Reath. Led by partners John Hockenbury and Douglas Mangel, the eight lawyers include Joseph Bailey, Janet McFadden, Alex Karam, Ingrid Smith, Nena Mashaw and Michelle Beecy. The group will continue to represent its current clients in connection with complex insurance coverage matters arising under D&O, E&O and other professional liability insurance policies, including hedge fund, private equity and general partnership liability policies.

“We are delighted to welcome John Hockenbury and Doug Mangel and their highly accomplished team to Shipman & Goodwin,” explains Scott L. Murphy, Managing Partner of Shipman & Goodwin. “The addition of these experienced attorneys exemplifies our commitment to expanding the reach of our existing national insurance practice and we are extremely excited about our potential for growth in this area.” 

“Shipman & Goodwin is the right platform for our practice,” said John Hockenbury. “We join a strong existing national insurance practice led by Jim Ruggeri, Partner-in-Charge of the D.C. office, and also gain talented colleagues in Connecticut who will allow us to grow the business and continue to provide first-rate service to our clients on a national basis.”
