One year after merging, Barclay Damon, LLP is poised for growth in Boston.

Barclay Damon has had a busy year.

The 275-attorney firm not only executed a merger and an office move in Boston since last year, but also renovated a new office in Syracuse in a building to be renamed Barclay Damon Tower and secured a nearly $24 million jury verdict on behalf of a major technology-based client in a record-setting patent litigation matter.

Formerly Hiscock & Barclay, the firm’s merger one year ago with Buffalo-based Damon Morey has created a unique super-regional law firm with a deeper bench of legal talent and experience and an enhanced platform for strategic growth, according to Brian Whiteley, the firm’s Commercial Litigation Practice Group leader.

“It’s hard to be a large firm in only one city in today’s national and global economy; you need a broader footprint,” said legacy Damon Morey partner Carol Snider, now head of Barclay Damon’s Mass & Toxic Torts Practice Area. “We knew we needed offices in other cities to support the practice that we had, and the one that we wanted to have. Hiscock & Barclay had offices in major markets like Boston, New York and Toronto which was a great fit for where we were and where we wanted to be.”
