Schnader Harrison Changes Up Litigation Group Leadership

Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis will have representation from the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh offices among the litigation group’s leadership. Philadelphia partner J. Denny Shupe was appointed chairman of the litigation services department and Pittsburgh partner John K. Gisleson was appointed vice-chairman.

They replace Samuel Silver and Jennifer DuFault James, respectively. Silver will focus instead on his new role on the firm’s executive committee. Silver and James led the department for the past four years.

The litigation group is the firm’s largest department with over 100 attorneys.

“I am excited to be able to work with John and continue to build upon [Silver’s and James’] foundation of growth and success, while also bringing a fresh vision, energy, and strategic direction to the department,” Shupe said in a statement. “Schnader is known for excellence in trial and appellate courtrooms, and that core strength positions us well for the future.”

Gisleson started out in Schnader Harrison’s Philadelphia office and has previously served as the co-chairman of the business litigation group.
