Attorneys invest in model that fits for all
When Barclay Damon was formed after the merger of Damon Morey and Hiscock & Barclay, officials at Buffalo’s third-largest firm knew they would need a hyper-communicative model and aggressive management team to follow through if lofty goals were to be met.
That made it easier for Peter Marlette and James Domagalski, co-managing directors of the local office, to lead the firm in creating something new by becoming a super-regional firm in Upstate New York while plugging into the Buffalo renaissance. The firm also strengthened many of its practices.
The merger last year created a statewide entity with 275 lawyers and 11 offices including Boston, Washington D.C. and Toronto. The largest office is in Buffalo, with 105 attorneys in the Avant building.
“We are a group that converts ideas into results as well as any organization I have ever been involved with,” said Domagalski, who ran Hiscock & Barclay’s local office before the merger. “A lot of that is based on communication style, accountability and follow-up. We hold meetings with a purpose and communicate with a purpose.”
