Posted in Announcements on November 28, 2017

THOMASVILLE, Georgia – Conroy Simberg, one of the Southeast’s leading insurance defense firms, has expanded its Georgia presence with the opening of a new office in Thomasville, Georgia. Joshua C. Canton has been named Managing Partner of the office, from which he will oversee business development and client relations throughout the State of Georgia. Canton, an AV-rated trial attorney, has practiced civil liability defense for almost two decades and has served as a Partner in the firm’s Tallahassee office since 2011. 

“While we have been representing clients across the State of Georgia for many years, and have established a proven track record of obtaining outstanding results, we feel that our clients’ needs will be best served by our local presence in Thomasville,” said Canton. “Our strategic growth is driven by the interests of our clients and supported by our nationally recognized reputation as a premier insurance defense and commercial litigation firm.” 

Overall, the well-established rapidly-growing firm has approximately 150 attorneys providing a diverse range of legal services to insurance companies, self-insured organizations, businesses, and professionals. The firm’s major practice groups include general liability and casualty, workers’ compensation, claims defense, commercial litigation, and appellate law.  The firm represents clients across numerous industries, including insurance, health care, manufacturing, transportation, construction, professional services, retail, automotive, and transportation industries – to name a few.  

For over a decade, this expertise has been extended to Georgia, where, in addition to Canton, Conroy Simberg’s diverse group of Georgia attorneys represent clients in general civil liability, workers’ compensation, and appellate matters.  The team includes Sarah Finney Kjellin, a Georgia native who practices general liability, commercial litigation, and appellate law; Christopher A. Tice, who primarily defends businesses and other entities in workers’ compensation matters; Michael J. Bonfanti, a first party property and general defense litigator; and Lara J. Edelstein, whose practice centers on representing clients in appellate matters. 

“We are confident that the team we have assembled will provide the utmost legal focus in the most efficient and cost-effective manner,” said Conroy Simberg founder and Managing Partner Bruce Simberg. “For over 38 years, our approach has been to provide our clients with our signature level of high service and to utilize our legal expertise to ensure that clients can make timely and well-informed decisions. We are thrilled to combine the benefits of a hometown presence in South Georgia and with our solution-oriented service to clients throughout the state.”
