Trenk Isabel P.C. directors Richard D. Trenk and David L. Isabel are pleased to announce that Asaad K. Siddiqi and John L. Shahdanian II have joined the firm as name partners and directors, with the firm now known as Trenk Isabel Siddiqi & Shahdanian P.C., effective today.

Also joining the firm are attorneys Reginald Jenkins, Jr. and William F. Rupp as partners and Valentina M. Scirica as an associate, along with paralegals Cindy Chen and Debby Vida. The additions nearly double the firm’s bench strength, bringing its total number of attorneys to 12, significantly bolstering the firm’s client services and capabilities in areas including commercial and complex litigation; labor and employment; environmental; land use and redevelopment; bankruptcy and restructuring; and public entity law.

“This is an exciting time for our firm, and for our clients, as John and Asaad join not only as tremendous advocates but also as leaders of our firm,” said Trenk. “We knew of Asaad and John through their outstanding work with the New Jersey State Bar and Bergen County Bar associations and their various leadership roles, and they are a great fit for our firm, further expanding our capabilities in multiple practice and industry areas of particular importance to our clients.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Asaad and John as directors with our firm, as well as Reggie, Bill and Valentina as key members of our growing team of attorneys,” said Isabel. “This was a rare opportunity to expand our services in labor and employment, commercial litigation, land use, public entity and redevelopment spaces, with highly regarded lawyers.”

Siddiqi added, “Rich and David have built a diverse, experienced team and a collaborative firm culture that values mentorship and professional development. I look forward to shaping the future of Trenk Isabel Siddiqi & Shahdanian as a director and am honored to join the firm’s roster of commercial litigators.”

“I have known Rich for many years, and I was confident that his and David’s practices and firm would mesh well with our team and allow us to provide a significantly expanded array of legal services and opportunities,” said Shahdanian. “I am eager to introduce our clients to the deep pool of legal talent and experience that is available to them across a broad range of practice areas.”
