The firm welcomes Stephen H. Vengrow and Eric Chang in New York
Montgomery McCracken has added two attorneys to the Maritime and Transportation practice group in the firm's New York office. Stephen H. Vengrow joins the firm as a partner and Eric Chang joins as an associate. Both were previously at the maritime law firm of Cichanowicz Callan Keane Vengrow & Textor, LLP.
“We are continuing to expand the capabilities of Montgomery McCracken's Maritime and Transportation Practice Group, having grown significantly over the past 10 years, with prospects for additional growth in the next few months,” said Vincent M. DeOrchis and John J. Levy, co-chairs of the firm's Maritime and Transportation Group. “Steve's and Eric's combined depth and experience add to the great talent we have.”
Vengrow brings to the firm more than 40 years of experience in maritime law. He focuses his practice on cargo claims, personal injuries, collisions, ship fires, land transportation, insurance, corporate litigation and bankruptcy matters. Vengrow previously served in the General Counsel's office of the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) and as in-house counsel of SeaLand. He has developed a well-regarded reputation in matters involving the illegal carriage of drugs on vessels and stowaways.
Chang focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation and maritime matters. He has represented clients in the defense of claims for damage/lost cargo carried on containerships and cargo ships on ocean and intermodal rail/track carriage. Chang has also drafted memorandums of law and briefs and has argued motions in State and Federal courts.
