Erin Moore Joins Gravel & Shea’s Expanding Litigation Team

Erin Moore joined the Gravel & Shea litigation team today. Erin focuses her litigation practice in the areas of banking and finance, securities, real estate, significant tort and class actions.

“I am thrilled to be joining Gravel & Shea.  I greatly value the firm’s collegiality, commitment to providing exceptional client service and desire to take on the most complex and challenging matters. I very much look forward to working with this extraordinary group of lawyers.”

Prior to joining Gravel & Shea, Erin practiced with two prominent Atlanta range of litigation-related matters, including breaches of contract and fiduciary duties, negligence, fraud, RICO, false arrest, malicious prosecution and violations of various state and federal  statutes.

Erin has represented clients in all phases of state and federal litigation, including preliminary injunction proceedings, dispositive motion practice, electronic discovery trial arbitration, mediation, and appeal.

“We are very pleased that Erin Moore has joined our litigation group,” said Shareholder Bob Hemley. “In over a decade as a litigator for big firms in Atlanta, Erin has focused on complex civil litigation, in both state and federal courts.  She has taken on primary responsibility in a number of difficult and challenging cases and should fit in perfectly with Gravel & Shea’s practice.  In addition to her skills as an advocate, Erin’s love of the outdoors should make her adapt right away to life in Vermont.”

Erin graduated magna cum laude from Boston University School of Law.

 

 

Gravel & Shea Helps South Burlington Make Blockchain History

On February 20th, real estate marketplace Propy completed the first real estate transaction using blockchain in the United States.

Gravel & Shea attorneys have been working with Propy to develop a pilot program in Vermont for almost a year, identifying an appropriate location and property for the transaction as well as performing the necessary legal due diligence for sale and purchase of real estate.

Financial blog Zerohedge reported on the sale, calling South Burlington a “global blockchain leader.” The transaction lays the groundwork for other states to do the same, and several are planning to follow Vermont’s lead in the coming months.

Gravel & Shea’s Blockchain Technology group specializes in analyzing and resolving legal issues related to blockchain technology.
