Armstrong Teasdale Opens 13th Office in Five Years, Adds Novack and Macey Firm in Chicago

April 3, 2023 Press Releases

Armstrong Teasdale announces the establishment of a Chicago office and the addition of nearly 50 lawyers and staff professionals from Novack and Macey. The combination, effective April 1, bolsters Armstrong Teasdale’s firmwide roster to over 800 lawyers and staff professionals internationally, and creates a stronger foothold for the firm in major U.S. metropolitan areas.

Since 2018, Armstrong Teasdale has roughly doubled in size, successfully integrating 12 new offices and hundreds of lawyers and staff in the U.S. and overseas. In 2022 and 2023, the firm established new locations in Miami, Florida; Dublin, Ireland; Washington, D.C.; and Orange County, California.

“We are pleased to welcome a talented, dedicated group of trial lawyers from Novack and Macey, as well as plant a flag in Chicago where we’ve long served clients across practice areas,” said Armstrong Teasdale Managing Partner Patrick Rasche. “Their sophisticated practice and collegial culture immediately clicked with our mission and values. This opportunity is yet another expression of our desire to grow and remain competitive in today’s legal market.”

Novack and Macey, founded in 1984 by Stephen Novack and Eric Macey, has been recognized by The Chicago Tribune as “a high-powered litigation boutique.” The firm, whose Managing Partner is Don Tarkington, has built a national reputation for complex business litigation and general litigation counseling, and their experience includes trial and appellate, alternative dispute resolution, banking and financial services, business torts, class action litigation, construction litigation, corporate and commercial litigation, intellectual property litigation, bankruptcy, employment and labor, franchise law, health care and life sciences, insurance litigation, ethics and professional responsibility, legal malpractice defense, product liability, real estate and trusts and estates. Further, their clients span a variety of industry sectors that complement Armstrong Teasdale’s, including energy, real estate, technology, chemicals, financial services, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, retail and transportation.

“I’ve long been familiar with and respected Armstrong Teasdale for the quality of their work, culture and character,” said Novack. “The broader platform will allow our dedicated team of lawyers to continue their responsive and personal approach to providing service to our clients while taking advantage of the global resources that Armstrong Teasdale offers.”

With decades of combined experience handling high-profile, high-stakes litigation matters in state and federal trial and appellate courts and in arbitration, Novack and Macey’s lawyers have achieved considerable recognition within the profession. The firm and its lawyers are highly ranked by Chambers USA, The Best Lawyers in America®, Illinois Super Lawyers® and Illinois Leading Lawyers.

“In this new capacity, we will continue our focus on lean staffing with energetic, highly focused lawyers who give clients their full attention, and I’m confident that Armstrong Teasdale is committed to the same,” said Macey.

Partners Novack, Macey and Tarkington join Armstrong Teasdale alongside a distinguished team of litigators. They include Partners Andrew Campbell, P. Andrew Fleming, Joshua Liebman, Monte Mann, Mitchell Marinello, Timothy Miller, Yvette Mishev, Rebekah Parker, Stephen Siegel and Elizabeth Wolicki; Counsels Shelby Drury, Laura Jennings, Julie Johnston-Ahlen, Marie Lim, Mario Martinez and Dana Taylor; Associates Ian Flanagan, Stephanie Moon, Serena Rabie and McKensie Villarreal; and more than 20 skilled staff professionals.

“Together with Armstrong Teasdale, we now have a bench of more than 200 litigators internationally, backed by the strength of lawyers across more than 70 other practice areas to further support our existing clients,” said Tarkington. “We look forward to carrying on the nearly 40-year legacy of Novack and Macey and continuing the growth trend in the Chicagoland area.”

Armstrong Teasdale will assume Novack and Macey’s existing office space at 100 N. Riverside Plaza, Chicago, IL, 60606.
