Former Grant & Eisenhofer director and practice leader Adam Levitt is leaving to lead a newly formed plaintiffs firm, along with a pair of lawyers formerly of Cleveland's DiCello Law Firm.
The new firm, DiCello Levitt & Casey, announced its launch Monday morning and will be helmed by founding partners Levitt, Mark DiCello and James Casey. The plaintiffs firm will start with 11 lawyers, a full support staff and offices in Chicago and Cleveland.
Beyond the founders, the new firm will also count as partners John Tangren, formerly of Grant & Eisenhofer, Amy Keller, formerly of Wexler Wallace, and Robert DiCello, who comes from DiCello Law and is Mark DiCello's brother.
Levitt, who left Grant & Eisenhofer's Chicago office after serving as head of the firm's consumer protection and product liability group, said in an interview that he felt the time was right to branch off.
