Barron & Newburger PC, an Austin law firm specializing in commercial and bankruptcy litigation as well as compliance and regulatory issues, has just wrapped up the third leg of a national 


expansion plan that has pushed the firm into new markets from coast to coast


Thomas Good, the firm's recently hired managing attorney, heads up Barron & Newburger's newest office in Colorado, that opened in September. Earlier this year, the firm added offices in New 


York City and in Santa Ana, California. The firm's other office is in Houston


Good said the firm "isn't done yet" with its growth plans, but he said whether or not the firm adds more staff to its existing offices or decides to enter a new market will depend on 


clients' needs. The recent opening of the Colorado office in Arvado, just north of Denver, has pushed the firm's total headcount to 19, including 10 attorneys, with about half of those 


employees in Austin


"I can't just give you a number to say we might double or triple our staff. But we are committed to growth," said Good, who was general counsel with Square Two Financial Corp. before 


joining Barron & Newburger. Joining Wood in Denver is David Silverman, who is now the firm's of counsel


He said the firm is taking the expertise that it established in Austin to other markets and is looking to broaden the depth of its offerings to clients with the expertise that has been 


added with the opening of the New York and California offices. Specifically, he said the firm will be targeting the financial services industry


"We made a determination that we could broaden our base into all areas of financial services, from banks to auto finance, and [with the new offices] we are making that commitment," Good 


said. "This is a very challenging legal and regulatory market for financial services companies, and we believe we have the wherewithall to help them navigate through these times by either 


providing general counsel services or helping them in lawsuits or compliance"
