McGlinchey Stafford is pleased to welcome two attorneys to the firm’s Commercial Litigation and Financial Services Litigation practice groups in the New York City office. Experienced litigator Margaret Cascino has been hired Of Counsel and Matthew Gordon has been hired as Associate.
Margaret brings to McGlinchey nearly twenty years’ experience serving financial services clients, handling all types of matters relating to commercial and consumer disputes in state and federal courts in New York and New Jersey, with a particular emphasis on lender liability defense, complex litigation, bankruptcy, consumer disputes, and secured transactions. Her previous experience spans from loan origination to sales and extends to appeals, regulatory compliance, and insurance defense. In prior positions, Margaret has established and led her firms’ related New York practice groups.
“I’ve worked with and been very impressed by Margaret in the past. I’m honored to have her join us here at McGlinchey,” said Mikelle Bliss, Managing Attorney of McGlinchey’s New York City office. “She will bring a wealth of valuable knowledge to our clients’ operations across the country and help us lead our litigation team covering New York and New Jersey.”
Margaret holds a J.D. from American University’s Washington College of Law and earned dual cum laude bachelor’s degrees in Broadcast Journalism and Policy Students from Syracuse University. She is admitted to practice law in New Jersey and New York.
Matthew’s practice focuses primarily on representing clients with respect to commercial and consumer litigation, including lender liability defense. He has experience representing a wide variety of businesses in complex commercial litigation cases. Matthew is licensed to practice law in Massachusetts and New York, and in addition to his New York practice, will assist with Massachusetts matters through the firm’s Boston office.
“Matthew’s skillset is perfectly aligned with the counsel our clients need from us in New York, Boston, and nationwide,” said Bliss. “We are pleased to welcome Matthew to our team.”
During his time at Boston University School of Law, where he earned his law degree, Matthew interned in the New York County Supreme Court’s Civil Term under the Hon. Arthur F. Engoron. He also participated in an Employment Rights Clinic and published “A Hybrid Approach to Analyzing Authorization in the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act” in the Boston University Journal of Science and Technology Law. Matthew also holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Lehigh University.
“The addition of Margaret and Matthew’s experience to our deep bench of talented commercial litigators will provide great value to our clients,” said Anthony Rollo, who chairs the firm’s nationwide Commercial Litigation and 70-attorney Financial Services Litigation practice groups. “We look forward to working with them to serve our clients nationwide.”
