Kaufman Dolowich & Voluck Celebrates Five Years in Chicago and Announces the Expansion of its Office Space
(September 3, 2019, Chicago, IL) —
Kaufman Dolowich & Voluck LLP (KDV) today celebrates its 5-year anniversary of establishing its Chicago office. On September 3, 2014, KDV-Chicago began operations with three attorneys — Stefan Dandelles, David T. Brown and Brendan P. McGarry. Over the past five years, the office has steadily grown its core practice areas in insurance coverage, financial services, professional liability and employment practices liability across its national platform.
“David, Brendan and I joined KDV to be a part of a firm that was expanding geographically and to grow the practices that we brought to the table,” said Dandelles. “It is gratifying to see what we have been able to accomplish in a relatively short period of time; measured most importantly by our ability to continually meet and exceed the expectations of our local, national and international clients.”
Beginning its sixth year, the Chicago office now has 25 attorneys and 10 support staff, and just announced that it has signed a lease to expand its existing space in Chicago by nearly 5,000 square feet to accommodate current and future growth. The firm expects the build-out of the new, contiguous space to be complete in November.
In March 2017, attorneys from Baugh Dalton LLC joined the KDV Chicago team. Today, named partners from that firm, David A. Baugh and John D. Dalton, along with Dandelles, are co-managing partners of the Chicago office. Baugh is also co-chair of the firm’s national Financial Services Practice Group and Dandelles is chair of the national Fidelity & Surety Practice Group. In the Chicago office as well is one of two other co-chairs of the Financial Services practice, Nancy L. Hendrickson, and the co-chair of the national Insurance Coverage and Litigation Practice Group, David T. Brown.
“Our office expansion is testament to the great work and dedication of our attorneys,” said Baugh. “We have established a national reputation for our professional malpractice defense, directors’ and officers’ liability defense and representation of clients in proceedings and investigations pending before the SEC, FINRA and state securities commissions.”
“Our goal is to continue to build our bench strength in a very competitive marketplace and be a significant part of KDV’s long-term growth,” said Brown.
KDV’s Chicago office is located at 135 South LaSalle Street, Suite 2100.
