Cohen Kinne Valicenti & Cook, one of Berkshire County’s largest law firms, has announced that Dennis G. Egan and Jesse Cook-Dubin have been named as partners.
Both Egan and Cook-Dubin are corporate attorneys who focus their practices in business, banking and financing law.
Egan joined Cohen Kinne in 2012 after practicing at the largest law firm in the Pioneer Valley. In addition to being a very skilled transactions lawyer, who is very active in health law, Egan leads the firm’s Real Estate Division and has been involved in many of the most complex real estate transactions and bank financings in and around the Berkshires. Egan is the Immediate Past Chair of the Berkshire Leadership Program and one of the leaders of the organization of 1Berkshire Strategic Alliance Inc. He volunteers with a number of other organizations in the area.
Cook-Dubin worked for several years as an insolvency specialist at a large Midwestern law firm before moving back to the Berkshires in 2011. He has distinguished himself in complex business transactions, including those involving physician practices. He is also the volunteer President of Downtown Pittsfield, Inc.
“It did not take our clients long to realize the value that Dennis and Jesse bring to the table,” said Cohen Kinne partner C. Jeffrey Cook. “Not only are they terrific attorneys and recognized community leaders, but they have quickly become trusted counselors to our clients who operate businesses, financial and cultural institutions, and medical practices throughout western New England and eastern New York. In all my years of practice in the Berkshires, Dennis and Jesse are the two best associates I have ever had and they have come together as a very effective team. I am sure they will continue to be practice leaders who will assure that our firm will continue to enjoy the rapid growth we have experienced because of the talent of our younger lawyers.”
Cohen Kinne Valicenti & Cook is a firm of 10 lawyers with offices in Pittsfield, Great Barrington and Lenox, Massachusetts. The firm’s primary practice areas include civil litigation, criminal defense, business and banking law, intellectual property, employment law, commercial real estate, education law, and health law.
