NEW YORK, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Allen A. Drexel, formerly of Hogan & Hartson LLP (now Hogan Lovells), and ToniAnn Grande, formerly of Cohen Lans LLP, have recently formed Drexel Grande LLC, a law firm in New York City concentrating in complex matrimonial and family law matters.  Mr. Drexel and Ms. Grande began their legal careers clerking for federal judges, and went on to practice commercial litigation at Simpson Thacher LLP and Sullivan & Cromwell LLP respectively.  From 2004 to 2007, they practiced together at Cohen Lans LLP, a prominent New York matrimonial boutique.  Mr. Drexel went on to join the litigation department at Hogan & Hartson LLP, where he worked almost exclusively on family law matters, before starting the new firm with Ms. Grande earlier this year.

"Our focus is on family law for both traditional and non-traditional families," said partner Allen A. Drexel, who co-chaired the New York City Bar Association's LGBT Rights Committee from 2005 to 2008.  Mr. Drexel was recently quoted by the New York Times as an expert on the subject of same-sex family law issues.

Drexel Grande specializes in divorces, prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements, spousal and child support issues, child custody and visitation matters, and same-sex family law issues, including cohabitation agreements, division of property upon separation, and parentage disputes.  More information can be found on the new firm's website,
