CHARLESTON -– Lewis Glasser Casey & Rollins has named Nick Casey to be the firm's new managing partner.
In addition, the law firm has hired two additional attorneys to assist with its well-established and growing natural gas, commercial and litigation practices.
As managing partner, Casey will be responsible for managing the firm's operations and facilitating continued growth and expansion, particularly in its energy and government relations services.
Casey formerly was chairman of the West Virginia Democratic Party and then was under consideration for a possible appointment to a federal circuit court judgeship. He said he now will be focusing his energies and attention more on continued success of the law firm.
"I appreciated the fact that Senator Byrd recommended me to the President for a federal judgeship, but given the climate in D.C. and the political overlay I am going to be managing partner and keep moving forward with my law practice and legislative work."
