“About 20 years ago, we left ‘big law’ to create what we think is a truly remarkable firm. Our clients told us what they were looking for in their outside counsel. They wanted a partnership. They wanted to work directly with deeply caring and interesting people. They wanted to work with lawyers who loved exceeding client expectations every day. They wanted to work with lawyers who would leave no stone unturned. And finally, they wanted to work with a law firm composed of really, really smart people. So this is the kind of firm we created.”
