SAN FRANCISCO-Sedgwick Detert Moran & Arnold LLP has added seven attorneys from the Cassidy Shimko Dawson & Kawakami firm to its San Francisco office. With the Cassidy Shimko attorneys, Sedgwick has created a land use practice in California, and bolstered its existing real estate practice.

As of Jan. 1, 2010, four attorneys will join as partners, two as special counsel and one as an associate. “The addition of the Cassidy Shimko attorneys will dramatically increase Sedgwick’s ability to handle real estate and land use litigation, and transactional work,” says Sedgwick’s commercial division chair Steven Roland. “The creation of Sedgwick’s now state-wide land use practice will also provide a bridge between the existing real estate, environmental and construction practices of the firm.”

Partner Stephen Cassidy’s practice focuses on real estate and land use law, including development, finance, transactions and leasing, entity formation, and environmental law. Cassidy is closely involved with both the legal and real estate business communities having served in a variety of leadership roles with the California State Bar Association, the American Bar Association, and the International Council of Shopping Centers.
