LeClairRyan acquires Pizzo & Haman

The Virginia law firm will bring the firm's 23 employees on board.


LeClairRyan has merged with the law firm Pizzo & Haman. Founders Christopher Pizzo and Clark Haman join the Virginia-based firm as shareholders whilst nine senior counsel, three counsel and nine legal support professionals will also join.'Pizzo & Haman’s innovative approach to closely working with carriers and TPAs in the delivery of legal services creates a more effective, predictive and valuable service delivery model relative to how most law firms service this practice area,' said Elizabeth Acee of  LeClairRyan’s litigation department. 'I am looking forward to helping them continue to grow their already robust practices and expanding their inventive service delivery model to other areas of the firm.'


Pizzo & Haman served as national coordinating counsel for multiple insurance carriers and third-party administrators while providing operational, regulatory, and corporate compliance consultation for claims administrators, managing general agencies and insurance carriers. 'LeClairRyan is a great fit for us,' said Mr. Pizzo. 'Being a part of a full-service, national firm allows us to not only continue to provide efficient and effective service to our clients, but also to grow and enhance our practice across the country.'
