WASHINGTON, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Patton Boggs LLP is pleased to announce the establishment of two new offices in the Greater New York City Area -- one in Midtown Manhattan, the other in Newark, New Jersey. James E. Tyrrell, Jr. and John McGahren, both nationally renowned litigation specialists, will anchor the New Jersey office and will be joining the firm from Latham & Watkins' New Jersey office.

Joseph E. Hopkins, Scott L. Weber, Lisa Ann T. Ruggiero and Christopher M. DiMuro, will also join Patton Boggs as partners. Altogether nearly 30 attorneys from the Latham & Watkins' New Jersey office will join the new Patton Boggs office.

Mr. Tyrrell handles toxic tort, product liability, intellectual property, antitrust and general commercial litigation matters.
