Wilson and Newly Added Trial Lawyers Lukey and Murphy Discuss Firm’s Boston Growth

Manatt Hires 2 Boston Trial Lawyers, Eyeing Growth in 'New Economy' Sectors
– The American Lawyer

With the recent arrival of longtime friends and titans of the Boston and national trial bars Joan Lukey and Marty Murphy in Boston, Manatt continues to expand its footprint in the region and enhance its powerhouse trial and litigation capabilities.

Managing Partner and CEO Donna Wilson joined Lukey and Murphy in interviews with The Boston Globe and The American Lawyer, and highlighted how the Firm is building its Boston office for a variety of new economy sectors, including health care, higher education and technology. Murphy noted that the Firm’s unique business model was a leading factor in his decision to join Manatt, telling The American Lawyer, “Lawyers are problem solvers, but we don’t have all the solutions to the problems, so the integrated professional services model makes a lot of sense.” Lukey concurred, telling The Globe: “I love the idea of going to Manatt because of the model it represents.”

Since it’s opening in 2019, the Firm’s Boston office has quickly grown to over 25 legal and consulting professionals, and the addition of the litigation duo cements its reputation as a cross-industry powerhouse that is deeply embedded in the legal and business communities in the city and throughout the country. “The strengths of the economy in Boston paralleled perfectly the industries in which we focus,” Wilson told The Globe. As emerging sectors fuel more regulatory, legal and enforcement activity—especially throughout New England—Manatt is in an ideal position to continue providing unmatched, holistic client service for disruptive companies in the highly-regulated industries and markets in which they compete.

Lukey and Murphy’s arrival was also covered by Reuters, POLITICO and Bloomberg Law.
