Verrill Appoints Cheryl Johnson New Partner in Charge of Firm’s Westport Office

April 13, 2022 Press Releases

WESTPORT, Conn. (April 13, 2022) – Verrill is pleased to announce Cheryl Johnson as the new Partner in Charge of the firm’s Westport office.

Johnson focuses her practice on transactional tax matters, entity structuring and operations, business planning, and specialized securities law matters. She has been a member of the Firm’s Compensation Committee and Governance Committee, among others.

“We are focused on enhancing client service and value,” explained Johnson. “As our firm and the legal profession continue to evolve, I will do all I can to help position the firm for growth and success not just in Connecticut, but firmwide to meet growing demands for our services in my new role.”

Prior to Johnson, fellow Verrill Partner Barbara Young served as Partner in Charge of the firm’s Westport office for seven years.

Verrill expanded its reach into southern New England and the New York tri-state area when it combined with Connecticut law firm Levett Rockwood in 2015. Verrill recently moved its Westport office to 355 Riverside Avenue to provide state-of-the art technology and accommodations to service its clients, while remaining centrally located in the southwest Connecticut corridor.
