From a partnership of four Philadelphia attorneys in 1904, the firm has grown to be among the 100 largest in the world. Duane Morris' lawyers now work out of offices in North America, Europe and Asia to address clients' issues around the globe. See the Harvard Business School’s second case study of the firm titled “Collaborating for Growth: Duane Morris in a Turbulent Legal Sector.”
Throughout all the growth, Duane Morris always has been guided by the same principle. At the heart of the firm is a partnership, an agreement to work together in the pursuit of its clients' goals. Under the leadership of the firm's founders, and the influence of past and present chairmen, Duane Morris has embraced a culture of inclusiveness, congeniality and consensus building that is rare among law firms.
