Gilbert LLP Announces San Francisco Office


WASHINGTON, D.C., January 9, 2018 — Gilbert LLP announced, effective January 1, 2018, the opening of its office in San Francisco. This will provide the Washington, DC-based law firm with a meaningful presence on the West Coast. Heading Gilbert LLP’s office are newly-elected partners Peter Meringolo and Rebecca Kassekert, both well-respected litigators and trial attorneys with substantial experience and deep roots in the San Francisco area.

“Peter was a very highly regarded associate at our firm for many years,” said Chairman Scott Gilbert. “When he moved to San Francisco, we were truly sorry to see him leave. All of us are extremely pleased that Peter is back, particularly in the context of this exciting new venture.”

“With an office anchored by Peter and Rebecca,” Gilbert added, “who is an extraordinarily accomplished lawyer in her own right, we will be off to quite a running start. We have a number of clients in California, and elsewhere in the West, and we are actively involved in litigation and other proceedings there on a regular basis. This office will assist us greatly in connection with these current representations, client matters in which Peter and Rebecca are already engaged from their former firm, PMRK Law LLP, and future representations.”

“San Francisco has a vibrant and impressive legal community, with whom we have worked for decades, and we are very pleased and proud to become a contributing part of it. We intend for this to be a net plus all around.” said Gilbert.

Gilbert LLP, now in its 18th year, specializes in insurance recovery, strategic risk management, and complex dispute resolution. Gilbert LLP is well known for its emphasis on strategic problem-solving and its successful track record for clients, as well as for its longstanding commitment to public service.
