Law Firm of Berchem, Moses & Devlin Merges with Kimmel & Kimmel

The law firm of Berchem, Moses & Devlin has announced that it merged with the law firm of Kimmel & Kimmel, according to the Connecticut Law Tribune. Kimmel & Kimmel is located in Norwalk.

With the merger, Bercham adds five other lawyers practicing in multiple areas. The roster at Berchem increases to 40 with the seven lawyers from Kimmel & Kimmel. They are spread across Milford and Westport.

"These new lawyers at our firm bring a wide range of experience that will enhance service to our growing statewide client base," said Robert Berchem, president of the firm. "Our growth has always come through strategic steps aimed at improved service to clients."

Eugene Kimmel joins Berchem as senior counsel and Gregory Kimmel joins the firm as a senior partner. The Kimmel & Kimmel firm specializes in divorce and family law, real estate transactions, criminal law and personal injury issues. As the firms transition, the Kimmel & Kimmel firm will continue to operate in their Norwalk office. They eventually will move into the Westport office of Berchem. Kimmel & Kimmel is a father-and-son law firm.

Berchem has increased its municipal law practice by adding Peter Gelderman as counsel. He is from Fairfield and works as a land use and municipal lawyer. Berchem is also adding John Marini as an associate. Marini is the Ansonia Corporation Counsel right now.

Rebecca Goldberg is joining Berchem as an associate practicing in labor. Christopher Sugar is joining in the labor practice and Lynn Kirshbaum is joining in the education law practice.

Gelderman will be working out of the Westport office for Berchem. He deals with commercial and business transactions along with condominium law, civil litigation and residential and commercial real estate transactions.

"The addition of the Kimmel & Kimmel law firm and Mr. Gelderman represents major growth for our new offices on Post Road East in Westport," said Westport Managing Partner Ira Bloom. "We relocated here from Imperial Street to establish a significant presence for Berchem, Moses & Devlin in Fairfield County."
