“Civil litigation firm Goldberg Segalla is building its labor and employment bench strength in Pennsylvania with the addition of Angela Cronk, who departed the West Conshohocken office of Burns White one month after she was appointed to co-chair the firm’s labor and employment practice,” The Legal Intelligencer writes.
Angela A. Cronk—now a Philadelphia-based partner at Goldberg Segalla and a leader in the firm’s Employment and Labor practice—spoke with the publication about how her transition to Goldberg Segalla’s national platform will allow her to address clients in multiple geographic markets.
“I felt that this opportunity that came along at Goldberg Segalla could elevate my employment and labor practice to a national level, whereas before it was sort of at a regional level,” Angela said.
Caroline J. Berdzik, chair of the firm’s Employment and Labor practice, also spoke with the publication about how Angela’s addition comes in response to an increase in demand from employment and labor clients operating in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. She also added that this is the busiest time she has seen in her 25-year employment and labor practice.
“We view Angela as a lynchpin to the continuation of growth in employment and labor at the firm,” Caroline said. “There’s more litigation being filed and there are a lot more challenges that are being provided and presented to clients, and Angela provides an excellent background with her experience to help bolster and build out our Pennsylvania and New Jersey employment and labor practice.”
