National Law Journal: “Barclay Damon Jumped Onto Several of Our Top Charts”

In an article accompanying its 2016 list of the country’s 500 largest law firms, the National Law Journal says, “Barclay Damon jumped onto several of our top charts, including largest gains in total attorneys, size of the partnership, and associate ranks.”

The article notes attorney numbers at the firm were level from 2008 until last year, and quotes John P. Langan, managing partner: "When there is no growth, it's weird in the group dynamics [of a firm]. Things can get stale or intractable."

But with growth came excitement, the article says, explaining that “the chart-topping happened because of the combination between Hiscock & Barclay, a NLJ 350 firm last year with more than 200 attorneys, and the 90-lawyer Damon Morey.”

"There's dust in the air, and noise and coffee cups with cigarettes in them,” Langan says in the article, “but when you're done, you're so happy you did it."

Barclay Damon is the 157th largest law firm on the NLJ 2016 list.
