Our growth, from a core of fewer than a dozen attorneys to our present cadre of eighty, comes from attorneys who have chosen DeCotiis over their prior firms as well as lawyers who began their careers here.

Why do they come here? In a sentence, DeCotiis is a place that has always placed a very high priority on helping every attorney build a successful, rewarding practice.

First and foremost, we offer an extraordinarily diverse, high-level professional environment. DeCotiis lawyers are renowned for the depth and breadth of their corporate, industry and government experience and expertise. Many of our partners have held high-level posts in government. It is not uncommon to find yourself working with the attorney who drafted the statute at issue in a case or the attorney who argued the case that created the precedent you are trying to argue applies or should be distinguished. We have also worked with corporations, large and small, as a strategic business partner, using our intellect and experience to complete major transactions and defend large litigation matters. We have and continue to attract some of the best attorneys in the region.

For all of our expertise, we also have deliberately created a remarkably collegial culture at DeCotiis. Lawyers from different practice groups routinely team up to handle cases and craft solutions. We believe that diverse backgrounds, points of view and professional expertise strengthen our work product, and enable us to deliver the best, most creative solutions for our clients. Our style is hands-on, informal, and candid. The firm has an "open door" policy - any lawyer can talk to any other lawyer about any issue at any time.
