Connell Foley is extremely proud to announce that partners William Deveau and Nicole Dory have been selected by the New Jersey Law Journal for the 2018 listing of the "New Leaders of the Bar."
This annual listing recognizes New Jersey's top attorneys under the age of 40 who have shown significant accomplishments in four categories: development of the law; advocacy and community contributions; service to the bar; and peer and public recognition.
With a focus on commercial litigation and insurance coverage law, Will is an accomplished and versatile litigator who primarily counsels insurers on complex coverage issues, including bad faith, commercial and excess liability, construction defect, professional liability, directors and officers liability, nanotechnology and environmental claims. He advises on some of the most complicated and potentially disruptive situations that a company can face. With an educational background that includes environmental law, Will has also represented owners, developers and contractors in implementing solar photovoltaic power systems.
Nicole practices primarily in the areas of environmental and land use litigation and transactions, and other complex business litigation matters. With a degree in geology and experience as an environmental consultant, however, she is able to apply first-hand knowledge of scientific and technical issues in guiding her clients through myriad obstacles and opportunities. This unique approach means that Nicole truly understands her clients’ business. She regularly assists clients in advancing their development projects, complying with environmental and land use statutes, regulations and ordinances, and resolving complex disputes.
Will and Nicole and the other honorees will be recognized at the Professional Excellence Event to be held June 21, 2018 at Brooklake Country Club in Florham Park. For more information, please click "Law Journal Honors New Leaders of the Bar."
