Dilworth is pleased to announce that, by unanimous partner consent, veteran Dilworth partner Lawrence G. McMichael was elected Chairman of the firm and Gregory F. Cirillo was elected Vice Chairman.
“Larry is one of the most respected attorneys in our Firm with a national reputation as an outstanding lawyer and leader,” said Dilworth Chairman Emeritus Joseph Jacovini. “As Chairman, he will carry on the highest traditions of the Dilworth Firm – excellence in practice, loyalty to our profession and our clients, and commitment to public service. The Firm could not be more pleased with his election.”
Larry has spent his entire legal career with Dilworth and is recognized as one of the region’s most successful commercial trial attorneys and one of the pre-eminent bankruptcy attorneys in the country. He is one of only a handful of attorneys in the U.S. to be elected both as a Fellow of both the American College of Trial Lawyers and the American College of Bankruptcy. As Chairman, Larry will drive the Firm's strategic vision of targeted growth, continued legal excellence, and value added, highly responsive client service. Larry will actively continue his commercial litigation and bankruptcy practice in addition to his chairmanship responsibilities.
Greg Cirillo’s election to Vice Chairman brings added perspective and management experience to senior leadership. He has served for many years on the Firm’s Executive Committee and as Co-Chair of the Litigation Department. Greg has broad commercial litigation and trial experience. Greg and Larry have a long and successful history of working together on legal and Firm matters which will serve the Firm well as it transitions into the next decade of law practice.
