FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Effective immediately Knight Nicastro will officially be Knight Nicastro MacKay. The name change reflects the firm’s growth and the outstanding contribution of Derek MacKay who is a current member practicing in the firm’s Kansas City, Missouri office. Comprised of highly experienced trial attorneys, notably in transportation and insurance defense, Knight Nicastro MacKay will continue to represent clients in all phases of litigation nationwide.
“Changing our name to Knight Nicastro MacKay recognizes Derek’s extraordinary contributions to the firm and his integral role in the firm’s future,” said Chad Knight, member of Knight Nicastro MacKay. “He consistently delivers outstanding results for our clients and has been instrumental in the development of our firm and its attorneys.”
MacKay joined Knight Nicastro in October 2018, bringing his team from his prior firm including Allison Greenfield, Erik Nelson and Pamela Winter. The addition greatly expanded Knight Nicastro’s insurance defense practice. MacKay has significant experience representing insurance carriers, corporations and commercial transportation clients in matters involving product and contractual liability, personal injury defense and employment disputes. He practices in all areas of civil litigation with a focus on personal injury and wrongful death; and has successfully defended clients in numerous high-exposure, high-stakes cases.
“This has been an exciting year for our firm,” said MacKay. “Our success is thanks to our entire team of litigators, who put everything we have into every case to take care of our clients. I appreciate the recognition from my partners and am proud to have my name on the door.”
Knight Nicastro MacKay has seen significant growth in the first two quarters of the year, attracting top talent and expanding into new markets. Since January the firm’s roster of skilled trial attorneys has grown by more than 60 percent, with four new additions in Montana and five attorneys joining the newly opened offices in Peoria and Chicago, Illinois.
