LOS ANGELES (September 26, 2006) - Nossaman Guthner Knox & Elliott LLP today announced the addition of three attorneys to the firm's rapidly growing, national infrastructure practice. Simon Santiago, Edmund Caplicki and William Fisher have all joined the firm from construction law and government contract boutique Wickwire Gavin following that firm's acquisition by Florida based Akerman Senterfitt.
"We are fortunate to have an infrastructure practice that is in high demand across North America and are committed to serving that demand with highly qualified practitioners. The new attorneys not only meet our stringent criteria but also bring with them many years of valuable construction experience which is a superb complement to our existing capabilities," said Nossaman Managing Partner Scott P. DeVries.
"Santiago, Caplicki and Fisher are excellent additions to the team. This is the latest of several steps we have taken to meet the increasing demand we are seeing in the market-place for delivery of large scale transportation and other infrastructure projects using innovative permitting, procurement and financing. It is not our last step, however. We continue actively to seek out attorneys worldwide who can offer the same high level, large scale project experience our team is known for nationally," said Infrastructure Practice Group Chair Geoffrey S. Yarema.
