Firm News · February 26, 2018

Prince Lobel is pleased to announce the arrival of three new associates: Litigator Douglas C. Galloway, Real Estate attorney Adamantia K. Giannakis, and Intellectual Property attorney Alex E. Breger.

Doug Galloway joins our Litigation Practice Group with a background as both a litigator and a business owner in the construction industry.  He focuses his practice on tort and liability defense and construction litigation.  Galloway helps clients navigate their way through complex civil litigation matters and has handled claims relating to construction matters, premises liability defense, and general business issues.  In one notable case, he successfully received summary judgment against a plaintiff seeking $3.75 million in damages due to an accident that resulted in a traumatic brain injury.

“Doug will be an excellent addition to our Litigation Group,” said Managing Partner Craig M. Tateronis.  “He has a good business sense that enables him to understand clients’ litigation in a pragmatic and results-oriented manner.”

Adamantia Giannakis is the newest member of our Real Estate Group, specializing in both real estate and corporate transactions.  She works with clients on financing, leasing, and conveyancing real property and also handles permitting and land use matters, as well as title and survey issues.  In her corporate practice, she has worked on mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance matters, and strategic investments.  Before joining Prince Lobel, Giannakis assisted in a $60 billion merger at the Fortune 200 company where she served as associate counsel.

“Adamantia possesses a keen understanding of her clients’ needs, in both real estate and corporate matters.  Her transactional experience makes her a particularly welcome addition to our Real Estate Group,” said Tateronis.

Finally, our Intellectual Property Group welcomes Alex Breger, a patent prosecutor and litigator who assists clients with the preparation, drafting, prosecution, licensing, and enforcement of patents and trademarks.  Breger is licensed to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, where he has represented clients in post-grant review and opposition proceedings.

In addition to an engineering degree, Breger has experience in the patent world as a former project manager and legal consultant for a National Science Foundation-funded policy task force.  He researched, analyzed, and advised on policies regarding student intellectual property at colleges and universities.  He has spoken at multiple conferences and symposia; his article on “Managing Student Intellectual Property Issues at Institutions of Higher Education” was published by the Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM).

“Alex understands a wide variety of different technologies not only as a patent attorney, but also as an engineer and policymaker.  His ability to look at these industries and patent portfolios through multiple lenses will make him a valuable part of our team and an excellent resource for clients,” said Tateronis.
