Gentry Locke opens Richmond office
Former Del. Gregory D. Habeeb will lead a new Richmond office for law firm Gentry Locke.
Habeeb announced his retirement from the House of Delegates this summer. He was first elected to the chamber in 2011, representing a district that included Salem.
In addition, John G. “Chip” Dicks also has joined the firm as a partner in the Richmond office.
Dicks, also a former delegate, has been a lobbyist in Richmond since he left the chamber in 1990. First elected in 1982, his House district included Chesterfield and Colonial Heights.
The attorneys will move into a renovated office in the SunTrust building in downtown Richmond later this year.
Habeeb and Dicks are launching the firm’s Government and Regulatory Affairs Practice Group, which will focus on regulatory and administrative representation, public policy advocacy, economic development and procurement, and strategic communications.
Gentry Locke has 58 lawyers with offices in Roanoke and Lynchburg.
