Congratulations Gabrielle Sereni and Tom Goham on Your Recent Marriage

September 29th, 2017
By Raffaele Puppio

As you might imagine, the attorneys of Raffaele Puppio have a great deal of experience with contracts. Most of the contracts we draft and execute are not particularly newsworthy, but the contract executed on September 9 by one of our senior education law attorneys is an exception.

We are delighted for our colleague, Gabrielle “Gabby” Sereni, who entered into perhaps the oldest form of contract there is when she married the love of her life, Tom Goham.

She is now Gabrielle C. Goham . We’ve updated her staff page here on the website, as well as her email address. Don’t worry if you have emailed her anything at the old address – we’ve made sure she will receive it.

We were delighted to celebrate Gabrielle and Tom’s special day and wish them a lifetime of happiness.

From everyone at Raffaele Puppio, congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Goham.
