Andrea Coit Named Shareholder

andrea coit headshotHLGR is pleased to announce that Andrea Coit has been named shareholder.

Andrea Coit has been with the firm since 2001. Before being named shareholder, she was a senior litigation associate. Andrea is an experienced litigator whose practice includes a wide range of civil defense matters in state and federal courts. Her practice focuses on the defense of individuals and both public and private entities in matters involving professional negligence defense, civil rights violations, products liability claims, and employment disputes. She represents clients at the trial court level, as well as in private arbitration and before administrative review boards.

Regardless of the case, Andrea’s objective is to resolve her clients’ problems in the most pragmatic and efficient manner available under the circumstances. That may involve a mediated settlement or adversarial litigation; either way, she ensures her clients are fully informed and comfortable with the chosen strategy. This is one of the many reasons the firm’s shareholders were unanimous in their decision to invite her to become shareholder.

HLGR’s shareholder admission process is rigorous and thorough, with prospective shareholders being evaluated on several measures, from ethics and service to clients, to business development and ‘fit’ with other shareholders and existing clientele.
