A founding partner has departed from the law firm he started two decades ago.
Thomas Roberts parted with insurance law firm Roberts Levin Rosenberg last month, citing a differing vision for the future of the firm, now known as Levin Rosenberg. Roberts founded the firm in the mid-1990s.
“I decided that I didn’t want to be an equity partner any longer with that entity, so I set out to have a smaller enterprise,” Roberts said. “I’m still doing the same kind of work, but on a more focused basis.”
Roberts has been working as of counsel at personal injury law firm Coppola & Marlin since May 1, after consulting for a variety of injury law firms in Toronto for a number of years.
“When we split, we sent (our clients) a letter saying that they could stay with me, the firm or get a new lawyer,” he said.
Levin Rosenberg did not return several calls seeking comment.
Roberts’ specialty includes civil trials and appeals representing insurance policy holders suing their providers over bad faith claims.
Aside from working with Coppola & Marlin, there’s no word on what’s coming next for Roberts.
“That’s hard to say what else I’ll do,” he said. “It’s just kind of uncertain right now.”
Roberts, a University of Denver law graduate, founded the firm in 1995. Brad Levin joined him in 2000, Roberts said, followed by Mike Rosenberg a few years later.
