Williams Mullen is pleased to announce that Adam Casagrande, a litigation shareholder in the Norfolk and Virginia Beach offices, has been elected to the firm’s Board of Directors and made a Vice President of the firm.

“Our leadership is constantly looking at new and innovative ways of doing business,” said Tom Frantz, President and CEO of Williams Mullen. “Adam will bring a fresh perspective and new ideas to our firm, and I’m delighted to see him elevated to this position.”

In 2011, he was named by Inside Business to their “Top 40 Under 40” list. He also has been recognized by other respected ranking publications, including Virginia Super Lawyers magazine and Inside Business magazine’s “Legal Elite” rankings.
