Foran Glennon Opens Tampa Office, Adds Two New Shareholders

Foran Glennon announces the opening of its latest office in Tampa, Florida, marking the expansion of the firm’s footprint into the Southeast region of the United States and expanding its national platform. This 11th global location underscores the firm’s commitment to serving the needs of a growing worldwide client base and staying true to the founding principle of client service excellence in insurance coverage, defense and subrogation matters.

The Tampa office, located at 2002 North Lois Avenue, Suite 505, Tampa, Florida 33607, will be rooted by two new shareholders, Sean Ravenel and Melissa Stephenson. Combined, the two bring nearly four decades of insurance and subrogation experience to the firm.

“We are excited to have Sean and Melissa join Foran Glennon and establish a firm presence in Tampa with Melissa and Sean spearheading our efforts,” said Michael L. Foran, the firm’s president. “This expansion represents a significant milestone, positioning our firm to serve our clients in a market that is among the country’s leaders in population growth and insurance litigation. We know Sean and Melissa are well equipped to lead our efforts.”

Sean represents corporate and private clients on subrogation and recovery matters in all fifty states. He manages cases from the date of loss through trial and appeal.

“Melissa and I are proud to join the firm and appreciate the trust placed in us to lead the team towards success,” said Sean. “We’re eager to join Foran Glennon in its endeavors to exceed client expectations, drive the firm’s growth and foster lasting client relationships in this new market.”

In private practice, Melissa represents Florida insurance carriers in first party defense, coverage and bad faith matters. In addition, Melissa has over a decade of in-house claims experience, managing litigation nationwide for complex disputes in areas such as excess general liability, directors and officers, fiduciary, cyber and property lines. Her experience for multiple carriers and over multiple lines of coverage, make her uniquely positioned to understand the needs of carrier clients and claims professionals.

“I am excited to be part of the Foran Glennon team and to introduce the firm’s model of sophisticated, efficient and cost-effective legal service to the Florida market,” said Melissa.

In 2023, the firm opened two offices in San Jose and Sacramento to better serve California-based clients. This additional office opening only a year later further displays the firm’s continued growth and determination to aid clients where they are.

Since 2001, Foran Glennon has represented clients across the globe, offering sophisticated legal services in a cost-effective manner. The firm’s solution-focused attorneys represent insurance companies and other businesses in coverage, defense and subrogation matters, as well as in commercial litigation and bankruptcy, insolvency and creditors’ rights cases.
