Levi & Korsinsky, LLP is pleased to announce that it has opened an office in San Francisco. The Firm is headquartered in New York City and also has offices in Connecticut and Washington D.C. The Firm enjoys a national practice in the areas of securities fraud, mergers and acquisitions, and consumer protection, and expects to grow its West Coast presence to meet the increasing demands of its clients. Partners Joseph E. Levi and Eduard Korsinsky founded the Firm in 2003 and are pleased to see their practice expand on both the East and West Coasts.
The Firm also welcomes Rosemary M. Rivas and Quentin A. Roberts. Ms. Rivas has joined Levi & Korsinsky as a Partner and will head the new San Francisco office. She brings more than 16 years of experience representing consumers in complex, class action litigation in both state and federal courts. She is one of the attorneys selected by Judge Charles R. Breyer to serve as a member of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in In re: Volkswagen “Clean Diesel” Marketing, Sales Practices, & Prods. Liab. Litig., No. 15-md-2672 (N.D. Cal.), which to date has settled for more than $10 billion dollars on behalf of consumers. Ms. Rivas is a regular speaker on consumer protection issues, including false advertising and data privacy. Previously, Ms. Rivas was a partner at another class action firm.
Quentin Roberts has joined the Firm’s San Francisco office. Mr. Roberts received his J.D. from the University of San Francisco School of Law where he graduated magna cum laude. He has worked closely with Ms. Rivas in approximately a dozen consumer cases, including In re: Volkswagen “Clean Diesel” MDL. Before that, he clerked and worked for several other class action litigation firms.
The San Francisco office opening follows the Firm’s expansion in Connecticut and Washington, D.C. “With the expansion in Connecticut, Washington D.C. and now San Francisco, we are able to better serve our clients and work with our co-counsel,” said Partner Donald J. Enright, who manages the Firm’s D.C. office. Partner Shannon L. Hopkins, who manages the Connecticut office, agrees: “Most complex litigation firms practice nationwide and it only makes sense to have offices in key cities.”
The expansion of the practice to California affirms the Firm’s commitment to representing and serving consumers and shareholders throughout the United States.
