Speros John Kokonos joined Perez Morris in 2021 after serving over a decade with the firm of Gibley & McWilliams, where his practice involved a career-long association with the commercial general liability (CGL) insurance industry, serving as panel defense counsel for hundreds of CGL insured clients. Prior to Gibley & McWilliams, Mr. Kokonos was the founding and managing partner of Kokonos & Associates for 15 years, leading his family legacy firm as it grew an already substantial business litigation practice focused mainly on commercial general liability insurance defense.
Currently, Mr. Kokonos’ practice focuses principally on the allied healthcare industry, specifically nursing homes, home health care providers, first responders, and emergency management services (EMS) organizations. His extensive relationships with nursing and medical experts in the fields of gerontology, neurology, nursing and orthopedics, to name just a few, have allowed him to effectively defend his clients in referred professional liability and commercial general liability cases for more than two decades.
Mr. Kokonos’ rich and varied background serves his clients well across many industries today. As a former fire chief and volunteer firefighter for over 20 years, Mr. Kokonos proudly represents and defends fire and ambulance companies as well as the municipalities whom they serve in various civil litigation matters. Additionally, before becoming an attorney, Mr. Kokonos worked in the manufacturing industry for almost a decade as a machinist and a machine shop representative. This manufacturing background gives him significant insight and perspective in representing his commercial manufacturing clients today in diverse matters including products liability, copyright, contracts and sales involving specially manufactured goods.
Mr. Kokonos has an exceptional track record of successfully litigating disputes in the state courts of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, as well as in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
