Dec 08, 2015, 13:23 ET from Dussias Skallas LLP

CHICAGO, Dec. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The law firm Dussias Skallas LLP marked its first year in business with the completion of a major corporate transaction.

Hub International Limited (Hub), a leading global insurance brokerage, acquired the assets of Forest Financial Group (FFG).  Founded in in 1998 by Nicholas T. Gialamas and based in Lake Forest, FFG specializes in employee benefits consulting.  Attorney A. Thomas Skallas, of Dussias Skallas, represented Gialamas in the deal.

"I have been a corporate client of Tom Skallas for quite some time," Gialamas said.  "The level of attention to detail and high quality service we received in this latest transaction confirms what we already knew and expected from this new firm."

Dussias Skallas was founded December 1, 2014 by family lawyer Dean S. Dussias and business lawyer Skallas, integrating family and business law services into a single firm serving entrepreneurs, business owners, key executives and other high-profile individuals and families. According to Skallas, "This was another opportunity to demonstrate just how well this new kind of law firm can work and the kind of value we can deliver to our clients."

To Gialamas, the FFG President and CEO now joining Hub Midwest-West as Area President, Dussias Skallas' integrated model, offering business and family law services from one team, made perfect sense.  "For an entrepreneur, the idea of separating business from personal life is almost impossible," he explains, "In working with Dussias Skallas, I have one team of advisors who truly understand the 'big picture' and work to protect my legal and financial interests."

The Dussias Skallas team working on the acquisition included Maria S. Bazakos and Rachel Tucker
