Sean McElligott Joins Silver Golub & Teitell

Stamford-based trial law firm Silver Golub & Teitell has brought on veteran attorney Sean K. McElligott as a partner.

Formerly a partner at Koskoff, Koskoff and Bieder, McElligott will represent clients in cases of catastrophic injuries from medical malpractice, products and alleged negligence. His Connecticut verdicts and settlements total more than $100 million since 2011.

In 2019, McElligott co-authored The Medical Malpractice Trial, a book published by Trial Guides to assist lawyers from around the country in medical malpractice cases.

“We are delighted to have Sean join SGT as a Partner,” said Peter Dreyer, co-managing partner of the firm. “He is a very talented trial attorney with unique abilities, and he has repeatedly demonstrated his skill in handling medical malpractice and other complex serious injury cases.”

McElligott also maintains an active state and federal appellate practice. He won an important appeal before the Connecticut Supreme Court involving the rights of same-sex couples to the loss of consortium remedy in Connecticut, and he has authored numerous amicus briefs on behalf of members of Congress.

McElligott also maintains an active pro bono civil rights practice representing victims of police brutality, exonerees and Connecticut prisoners alleging mistreatment. A graduate of Yale Law School and Trinity College, he lives in New Haven County with his spouse Sarah Russell, a law professor at Quinnipiac University, and their three children.
