 PITTSBURGH, Sept. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The national law firm Kirkpatrick & Lockhart and ten lawyers headed by litigation specialist Michael F. Armstrong announced today the formation of Kirkpatrick & Lockhart's New York office effective Oct. 1, 1993.
 The ten lawyers will form the nucleus of the new office, which will focus initially on civil and criminal litigation of all types, particularly financial and business matters and securities-related litigation. The office, located in One Rockefeller Plaza, will add a full complement of associate attorneys and staff in the near future.
 Joining Mr. Armstrong as partners in the firm's New York office are Warren H. Colodner, Mary B. Corrarino, Eugene R. Licker, Gerald A. Novack, Frederic W. Parnon, William O. Purcell, Eric T. Schneiderman and John Sullivan. David Simon will join the firm as counsel. Each has previously practiced with New York's Lord Day & Lord, Barrett Smith.
 Pittsburgh lawyer Ted Craig, chairman of Kirkpatrick & Lockhart's management committee, comments, "We at Kirkpatrick & Lockhart are delighted to establish a new office composed of such quality individuals and lawyers. We anticipate rapid growth in our New York office as we service the needs of our clients in and around New York and further develop our national practice."
 The firm anticipates that the New York office initially will provide a foundation to expand upon client work originated in its other offices. Washington partner, Dick Phillips, the current chair of the Business Law Section of the American Bar Association, states, "The addition of Mike Armstrong and his group will significantly enhance the securities practice in Kirkpatrick & Lockhart's Washington and other offices and strengthen our ability to serve and expand our substantial client base in New York."
 Mr. Armstrong adds, "Kirkpatrick & Lockhart is an exciting firm of truly fine people. We look forward to working with them to build something special in New York."
 With the addition of the New York office, Kirkpatrick & Lockhart now has over 350 attorneys, practicing in six offices, including Boston; Harrisburg, Pa.; Miami; Pittsburgh and Washington. In recent months, the firm has also announced significant expansion in the Boston and Miami offices. Kirkpatrick & Lockhart engages in general commercial practice, serving large companies and financial institutions, medium- sized and smaller firms, and individuals.
