On January 1, 2020, the firm completed its acquisition of Birtwhistle & Gibson, P.C., a 40-year-old law firm based in Bridgehampton. The acquisition allows Birtwhistle & Gibson’s clients to continue to be served by Twomey Latham in many diverse practice areas, including elder care, estate planning, trusts and estates, litigation, commercial law, employment law, and real estate.
As part of this acquisition, Craig Gibson has joined Twomey Latham as Of Counsel. Mr. Gibson concentrates his practice in real estate, specializing in residential buy/sell agreements and representing some of the top builders on the East End. In nearly 35 years as an attorney, Mr. Gibson has successfully completed more than 3,000 transactions.
“Prior to making this decision, I spoke and met with ten local law firms in order to determine which firm was the best fit for me and for my clients,” Mr. Gibson said. “I made this decision based upon my belief that Twomey Latham offers the best selection of experienced attorneys, with the broadest experience and fields of practice.”
Mr. Gibson is admitted to the New York State Bar and is a member of the Suffolk County Bar Association.
In the community, he performs pro bono work for the Bridgehampton Historical Society; this included working to preserve the Nathaniel Rogers House, which was originally built in the 1820s. He has also provided free legal services to local residents in need. In addition, he serves as President of the Eagleton Memorial Scholarship Fund, which provides financial assistance to graduating Bridgehampton High School seniors pursuing a college education.
Mr. Gibson graduated cum laude from St. Lawrence University and received his Juris Doctor from Dickinson School of Law. He is a longstanding resident of East Hampton.
