“We are very excited that Farzam has decided to join us at the forefront”, said Forefront co-founder Don Carlson. Mr. Kamel previously practiced at Paul Hastings, LLP and co-founded Edition01, a successful start-up.
Mr. Kamel stated, “I share the partners’ vision for developing a preeminent corporate boutique. I love the fresh approach to staffing, the use of technology and the fantastic client base. I think that Forefront provides the ideal platform for me to leverage my skills and network to build a remarkable business.” He also said, “I am looking forward to being at a firm that is acutely focused on its corporate practice and is not saddled with the vestiges and inefficiencies prevalent in big-law.”
Co-founder Jason Gabbard notes “Our expansion is not done yet. We’ll be adding more lawyers in the coming months and we plan to continue taking market share from our competitors.”
Over the previous 12 months, Forefront has added four new lawyers to its growing practice, including Kamel. Matt Weinbaum, from Chadbourne & Parke, joined the firm in August, Rick Bigelow, a seasoned IP lawyer, came on board in mid summer and senior lawyer Tom Morgan joined the firm in the spring of 2012.
Gabbard goes on to note, “Having young lawyers of the stature of Farzam and Matt is a great, positive step for us here at Forefront. These are super smart, young, hungry lawyers that will be the nucleus of the next generation of Forefront.”
