May 27, 2014 Press Release

SAN FRANCISCO (May 27, 2014): Farella Braun + Martel LLP is once again recognized in The National Law Journal’s “Midsize Hot List.” Farella was previously selected for the “Midsize Hot List” in 2010 and 2012.

In its profile of Farella Braun + Martel, The National Law Journal highlighted the firm’s tailored approach to developing client relationships. “Every client is a bit different in what they're looking for and in what kind of arrangements they need,” said firm chairman Steve Lowenthal.

The profile noted Farella’s effective use of multi-disciplinary attorney teams. Working cohesively with in-house lawyers and business professionals, the teams meet regularly, improving efficiency and sharing key issues. Additionally, Farella has long used client interview and feedback sessions to strengthen relationships with its clients. Farella strives to understand its clients’ goals and needs — “not just to stay up to date but to move ahead,” Lowenthal said.

The “Midsize Hot List” spotlights 20 law firms from across the country with 51 to 150 attorneys that are “succeeding at a time when many of their bigger competitors are struggling amid high headcounts and overhead.”
