Stinson Growing Tampa Office with Addition of Litigators, Brian Cummings and Murray Silverstein
Stinson LLP is pleased to welcome Brian Cummings and Murray Silverstein to the firm as financial services and class action partners. Cummings and Silverstein join Stinson in its Tampa, Florida, office, which recently opened to further serve a growing number of clients with operations in Florida and to capitalize on the region's steady growth.
Cummings has nearly two decades of experience litigating a wide variety of commercial matters and civil disputes in federal and state court throughout the nation. His practice focuses on complex consumer class action defense and representing defendants and plaintiffs in real estate and general business litigation. He also frequently handles appellate cases.
Silverstein utilizes skills honed through more than 30 years of offering clients an effective approach to resolving or litigating complex disputes in the areas of business, commercial and real estate matters in federal and state courts. He represents financial institutions, loan servicers, private equity firms, investors and developers in state and federal courts throughout the nation. He will split his time between Stinson's Tampa and New York offices.
Joining Cummings and Silverstein is attorney Christina Huckfeldt. She has experience litigating a wide variety of commercial matters and civil disputes in both state and federal court, focusing her practice on general business litigation, banking and financial services litigation, and oil and gas litigation.
"We are excited to welcome Murray, Brian and Christina to our growing Tampa team. Their litigation experience deepens our Florida bench and signals our commitment to high-quality representation and service," Stinson Managing Partner Allison Murdock said.
With the addition of these three attorneys, Stinson has doubled its office headcount to 10 attorneys in less than two months. The new attorneys enhance Stinson's ability to address their clients' increasing demand for legal services involving real estate, complex commercial litigation, mergers and acquisitions, and tax, trusts and estates.
"I'm thrilled to join this Midwest-based firm focused on client service and collaboration," Silverstein said. "Together with Marc Weintraub and our new colleagues, we look forward to exciting new opportunities for our clients as Florida and the firm continue to grow."
Prior to joining Stinson, Silverstein served as managing partner of Greenspoon Marder's Tampa office and Cummings served as partner at the firm. Huckfeldt was an associate at the firm.
