A Change at the Helm

On January 2, 2012, Terry Cassidy will take over as the Managing Shareholder at Porter Scott. Carl Calnero and Nancy Sheehan will serve as co-Managing Shareholders. This co-management model will allow Terry, Carl, and Nancy to continue actively litigating in their areas of expertise while running Sacramento’s premier all-litigation law firm.

The transition will be seamless thanks to the tireless efforts of current Managing Shareholder Anthony “Andy” Warburg. Andy has been with Porter Scott since its inception. When Russell Porter, Irv Scott, Ned Weiberg, and John Delehant opened the doors in 1976, Andy was there as the firm’s first law clerk. He continued on as an associate attorney and then a shareholder. In 1998, the management responsibilities for the firm were passed to Andy and Ned Telford. They worked as a team until Ned’s retirement in 2006. Over the next five years, Andy led Porter Scott as it expanded its client base and broadened the scope of litigation handled by its attorneys. As the result of his leadership and vision, we have transitioned from a well-regarded local presence to a firm that enjoys an excellent reputation as litigators on a state-wide basis.

Terry, Carl, and Nancy are excited about continuing to build the firm based on the commitment made by the founding shareholders that this firm will be second to none when it comes to providing our clients with quality representation in all aspects of litigation. “We are ready and eager to take the firm forward,” Cassidy said, “Andy has shown us how it should be done.” As experienced trial lawyers, they know the meaning of hard work and are confident the firm will continue to thrive under their guidance.

On behalf of the firm, we thank Andy for all he has done and for being a cornerstone of Porter Scott.
