The Chartwell Law Offices merges with Miami firm

February 28, 2013 Miami-based maritime and admiralty law firm Houck Anderson is set to merge with another east coast firm, The Chartwell Law Offices, under the latter’s name.

Houck Anderson is arguably the leading maritime law firm in the US, and also practices in general liability, premises, construction, aviation and other defense litigation.

The Chartwell Law Offices is a fast growing operation that has expanded to Pittsburgh, Scranton, Philadelphia, Harrisburg PA, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Florida since its founding in 2002. The firm now has 85 attorneys practicing principally in first and third party insurance coverage, casualty, employment and commercial litigation. 

"This is an important new chapter for Houck Anderson," said Mark Houck, founder of the firm, and now the Managing Partner of Chartwell's Florida operations and Maritime Practice. "We have worked hard to gain the respect of the maritime industry, and to be a leader in this arena. The timing of this merger is perfect as it gives us the opportunity to use Chartwell's positioning to expand our marine-based practices to the entire eastern seaboard, while Chartwell can increase its footprint in the important Florida market."
