Reflecting the breadth and depth of client services provided by the firm’s Transportation group, Goldberg Segalla has elevated four partners to the position of Co-Vice Chair. Teagan S. Allen, Elizabeth A. Chang, Karen Saab-Dominguez, and Sean T. Stadelman join Co-Vice Chair Ben S. Greenberg in managing the nationwide, multi-disciplined legal team of more than 70 attorneys dedicated to all aspects of the trucking, transportation, and logistics industries.
“These four attorneys stand out because of their exceptional legal and leadership skills,” said Robert M. Hanlon, Co-Chair of the Transportation group. “As Vice Chairs, they will continue providing our trucking and transportation-focused clients with counsel and representation, from prompt investigation and aggressive defense of a catastrophic injury case, workers’ compensation claim, or discrimination lawsuit, to proactive advice on business transactions, employment concerns, insurance coverage, or regulatory issues. At the same time, they will be mentoring and developing the next generation of exceptional attorneys.”
Teagan Allen is an experienced trial attorney, well-versed in personal injury, catastrophic damage, employment, and general liability matters. She focuses her practice on the unique needs of the trucking, transportation, and logistics industries, with an emphasis on app-based technologies, including mobility-on-demand and other lead generation services. In collaboration with the talented in-house counsel, attorneys, and claims professionals she works with on a regular basis, Teagan strives to think creatively in every matter, particularly those that involve complex factual and legal disputes.
“Teagan is loyal, passionate, and extremely thorough,” said Transportation group Co-Chair John M. Allen. “That makes her a strong advocate for our clients. She works closely with our client contacts to develop and implement sound legal strategies that advance our clients’ goals.”
Elizabeth A. Chang focuses her practice on all aspects of the trucking, transportation, and logistics industries—including employment litigation and counseling, professional liability, and casualty matters—with a particular emphasis on mobility-on-demand services. Liz works closely with clients and in-house counsel from the inception of litigation through settlement negotiation and trial. In order to provide outstanding customer service, Liz forms a connection with her clients, putting herself in the client’s shoes and working to make their job easier.
“Clients often tell us that Elizabeth is a perfect fit,” John said. “She’s known to be honest and trustworthy, able to uncover highly relevant facts and case law to bring matters to the desired conclusion.”
Karen Saab-Dominquez has a wealth of experience representing trucking companies and truck drivers in accident-related claims alleging personal injury, catastrophic loss, and property damage in all stages of litigation. She is a member of the firm-wide 24/7 Rapid Response and OSHA Rapid Response groups for trucking and construction clients, and is a frequent lecturer on emerging legal trends and other topics of interest within these industries. Karen is also a leader in the firm’s Women’s Initiative and previously served as co-chair of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee of the Claims and Litigation Management Alliance (CLM).
“It will come as no surprise to Karen’s clients that she has risen to this leadership role,” John observed. “She excels at providing meticulous, personalized attention to every matter.”
Sean T. Stadelman focuses his practice on litigating complex civil matters on behalf of transportation companies and product manufacturers. He regularly collaborates with clients to develop and execute a strategic plan for handling not only individual cases, but also mass torts. Sean’s experience also includes representing companies in federal multidistrict litigation and in Philadelphia’s Complex Litigation Center. He has worked with clients in a variety of industries, including transportation, life sciences, vehicle manufacturing, and consumer and industrial products.
“As a result of being exceptionally well prepared, Sean has been able to develop creative litigation strategies that lead to successful results for his clients,” John said. “Our transportation practice group has grown exponentially in the last few years, both in terms of the number of cases we’re handling and the number of attorneys in our group. All of our vice chairs have shown the ability to help Bobby and me provide the best service possible to Goldberg Segalla’s transportation clients.”
Responsibilities of the new role also include furthering the positive team culture within the firm, fostering mentoring relationships with associates, and continuing to do excellent work on behalf of Goldberg Segalla clients.
