Pillar+Aught Expands with New Attorneys & Additional Office Space



Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (July 28, 2017) — Progressive law firm Pillar+Aught today announced the addition of two seasoned attorneys, along with the rapid physical expansion of its Harrisburg office.  Angela McGowan joined the firm today and will lead Pillar+Aught’s real estate practice. She and fellow newcomer, Steve Moniak, a commercial litigation specialist, will both also contribute to Pillar+Aught’s burgeoning financial institutions practice.

Angela will focus on representing business clients in the negotiation and execution of real estate transactions, bringing with her over a decade of experience in the purchasing, development and leasing of real estate. She also has significant experience in the oil and gas industry, having represented owners, operators, and landowners in the negotiation of pipeline easements, as well as leasing, acquisition, and zoning issues. A 2017 Central Penn Business Journal “40 Under 40” winner and a 2016 “Women of Influence” winner, Angela has been consistently recognized for her leadership within the legal profession and the community.

Steve joins Pillar+Aught bringing two decades of experience litigating a wide variety of cases related to business litigation, employment and labor, intellectual property and technology, appellate, and insurance law. He has also served as local counsel and special counsel. His litigation expertise has been instrumental in resolving significant cases— ranging from commercial breach of contract cases to complex multi-million dollar corporate disputes to claims brought by the U.S. Department of Labor.

Both attorneys fully embrace the progressive approach for which Pillar+Aught has quickly become known. The full service law firm launched this past February with the goal of changing the traditional law firm experience with a team approach and unique pricing options for clients.

“Angela and Steve are a perfect fit for our team,” said Todd Shill, co-founder and principal at Pillar+Aught. “We’ve been humbled and energized by the support of our clients since starting the firm. We’re enjoying consistent growth by continuing to provide our clients with unrivaled expertise in our practice areas, cutting edge technology, and ultra responsive service. Angela and Steve enable us to offer even more depth and greater expertise, particularly to our business clients.”

To support its expansion, the firm leased an additional 4,000 square feet to provide office space for the new attorneys, additional support staff, and new training facility for its clients — all of which is being designed within Pillar+Aught’s industry-leading collaborative workspace model. “Our team is fortunate to have a lot of exciting work for a lot of great clients,” Shill said.

Pillar+Aught is located on East Park Circle off of Union Deposit Road in Harrisburg. For more information, visit www.pillaraught.com.
