For the second time in a week, Flaster Greenberg PC has added an attorney to its suburban Philadelphia office — this time welcoming a litigator who left his own transportation law boutique to join the firm. Eric Palombo is now a shareholder in Flaster Greenberg's litigation department and transportation law practice in the West Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, office, the firm announced Tuesday. Palombo told Law360 Pulse in an interview Wednesday that he made the move to take advantage of the firm's resources to expand services to his clients.

"This is an opportunity to join an excellent group with great individuals," Palombo said. "I can provide a full range of legal services to my clients and offer my services to Flaster's clientele. Flaster is the right-sized firm with the depth of experience in diverse practices that I am looking for."
The move was also an opportunity for Palombo to reconnect with a former colleague, Chris Merrick, Palombo said. The two practiced at the same firm for more than 11 years before Merrick moved to Flaster Greenberg.

"Chris and I came up together in the litigation realm," Palombo said. "I have tremendous respect for Chris. He is an outstanding legal thinker."
Palombo represents corporate clients on both sides of transportation litigation matters in state and federal courts. He also counsels clients on investigations led by government agencies, including the National Transportation Safety Board and the U.S. Coast Guard, according to Flaster
Greenberg's announcement. He has also drafted carrier tariffs and transportation agreements, and he consults on a variety of transportation and risk-related issues.

"Wherever the trains and trucks go, that's where I go," Palombo said. "I have a lot of experience in different litigation matters, including  derailments, damage to infrastructure transportation like bridges, and loss of cargo and freight claims. I get to see a lot of interesting places and present cases with unique subject matters."

After earning his law degree from Villanova University's Charles Widger School of Law in 2009, Palombo clerked for Judge Susan D. Scott at the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas in Pennsylvania, he said.
