Davis & Gilbert Featured in The National Law Journal’s Midsize Hot List for Third Consecutive Year

New York, NY, June 2, 2014The National Law Journal has once again selected Davis & Gilbert LLP for inclusion on its prominent 2014 Midsize Hot List for the third consecutive year. The list spotlights midsize law firms nationwide that “are succeeding at a time when many of their bigger competitors are struggling amid high headcounts and overhead” and “understand that it takes more than lower fees to bring in and retain business” according to the publication. Davis & Gilbert was one of only twenty firms selected to the 2014 list through a national evaluation and selection process, and one of only two firms to have made the list for three years in a row.

The feature article on the firm, titled “Retaining People Over Time,” highlighted the firm’s “made-to-order strategy,” both in terms of fostering and hiring talent and servicing clients at a high level. According to one client interviewed for the feature: “Davis & Gilbert attorneys’ deep understanding of their clients’ industries is what sets them apart… What makes them strong is not just the heritage and legacy; it’s the folks they have today that run the various practices.”

The article also cited the firm’s work for J.M. Smucker Co. on its first Olympic sponsorship of Team USA (which included the 2014 winter games in Sochi and the 2016 summer games in Rio de Janeiro) as an example of an innovative and multifaceted matter handled within the past year. The article further reported on the firm’s establishment of internal cross-departmental industry groups such as financial services, hospitality, and retail and the rollout of industry-focused training and internal talks on hot button issues to ensure its lawyers stay on the leading edge.
