White Plains, NY Fullerton Beck LLP, a full-service litigation firm founded by Eileen Fullerton and Katrine Beck, has opened their doors at 1 West Red Oak Ln. Fullerton Beck LLP serves the needs of clients in New York City, Long Island, Westchester, Orange, Sullivan, and Putnam Counties in insurance defense litigation and risk management. This unique litigation firm was founded by two female litigators, Fullerton and Beck, who have known each other for over 17 years. 

They both started their careers as an assistant corporation counsel working for the NYC Law Department, Bronx Tort Division. After zealously litigating and trying cases on behalf of the City of New York, each went into private practice at large insurance defense firms. Fullerton and Beck continued to stay in touch over the years and ultimately discovered that they shared a vision for teamwork, mentoring, and true partnership. This shared belief of these fundamental qualities along with putting the needs of clients before their own, was the catalyst for Fullerton and Beck to open Fullerton Beck LLP.  

“As a 100% female owned and managed firm, we pride ourselves on being a full-service boutique firm that offers high quality legal services for competitive rates,” said Fullerton, founding partner. “At Fullerton Beck LLP, we are committed to providing diversity and growth within, while providing the best representation for our clients.”  

“We are excited to open our firm here in Westchester County, where we have developed a professional network and respected reputation,” said Beck, founding partner. “Our hands-on approach with each case, together with our firm’s collaborative approach in defending cases, sets us apart and provides a different approach from other firms. As an entrepreneurial firm, we can relate to our clients’ needs to obtain efficient and effective quality service- without the need for long protracted litigation.”

Fullerton received her J.D. from Pace Law School and has 17 years of experience in general liability and defense, specializing in construction accident and New York Labor Law litigation, negligent security claims, premises liability, municipal liability and long-term care litigation. Dedicated to protecting her client’s best interests, Fullerton routinely conducts site investigation at dangerous building collapses and fire scenes, is OHSA-10 certified, and is not afraid to get her hands dirty to investigate claims. Fullerton has given several lectures to attorneys, insurers, and contractors on defending Labor Law actions in New York, where she enjoys sharing her knowledge and passing on important facts and information. 

Beck received her J.D. from Albany Law School and focuses her trial practice on general liability claims, municipal law matters, and commercial disputes with clients. Beck also serves as general counsel to several condominiums, cooperatives, and HOAs. Her clients seek out her clear-headed approach, innovative legal strategies, and mind-set to obtain results in a cost-effective manner.
