Burlington, MA (PressExposure) January 26, 2009 -- Brian Dougan, a Director with Gibson & Behman, P. C. and head of the firm's Rhode Island office, will oversee the new St. Croix office working with a team of attorneys and administrative support staff.
The St. Croix office will replace the firm's St. John location, said Dougan, and will allow better access to district courts in both St. Croix and St. Thomas.
"We felt the need to move to a larger location and found the ideal spot in St. Croix," said Dougan, noting that the firm will represent one of the largest health care networks in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The St. Croix practice will focus on civil litigation, personal injury, product liability and workers compensation for businesses and insurance companies throughout St. Croix and St. Thomas.
"We look forward to the opening of our St. Croix office and are delighted that Brian Dougan will serve as its Director," said Daniel P. Gibson, Managing Partner of Gibson & Behman. "With the growing demand for legal representation in the U.S. Virgin Islands, we felt the time was right to expand our practice at what we know will be a vital new location."
