Indianapolis-based law firm Scopelitis, Garvin, Light, Hanson & Feary PC plans to open an office in Milwaukee and recently leased 4,000 square feet of office space in the Plaza East building at 330 E. Kilbourn Ave. downtown.
Dave Pudlosky of Jones Lang LaSalle represented the firm in brokering the lease. The Milwaukee office will be the firm’s ninth in the U.S.
Scopelitis is a full service law firm that serves the trucking, transportation, and logistics industries. The firm has offices in Indianapolis, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Chattanooga, Tenn., Detroit, Spokane, Wash. and Dallas/Fort Worth.
The firm’s Milwaukee office will open on Aug. 1.
“A Milwaukee presence further broadens our firm’s reach in two very important ways,” said Greg Feary, president of the Scopelitis firm and one of its managing partners. “First it does so by adding two very talented and well respected litigators, both with deep experience in transportation matters,” he said. “And second by providing our transportation clients greater access to our firm’s knowledge base in transportation law, as well as a knowledge base specific to the Wisconsin and the Midwest region.”
Transportation attorneys Jay R. Starrett and Steven F. Stanaszak are joining the firm as partners to operate the Milwaukee office. Starrett will have the lead management role for the office. The Milwaukee office may add another attorney or two by the end of the year, according to Feary.
