16 lawyers packing their bags at NJ's Riker, Danzig

The New Jersey Law Journal reports today that:

One of New Jersey's bellwether firms, Riker, Danzig, Scherer, Hyland & Perretti of Morristown, is losing 16 lawyers to a new venture being formed by a cadre of defecting partners.

The new firm, to be known as Sherman, Wells, Sylvester & Stamelman, will open its doors July 14 at 210 Park Avenue in Florham Park.

The partners leading the foray are Sandra Sherman and Julian Wells, both members of Riker Danzig's Executive Committee, along with Anthony Sylvester, Andrew Stamelman and Harold Atlas.

Also making the move are 11 associates and six staff members.

Glenn Clark, managing director of Riker Danzig, said the departure was "amicable" and that the lawyers who formed their own firm were open with colleagues about their plans.
