Q&A: Frugal Management Results in High Profits for Equity Partners


Fordham Law alumnus Raymond J. Dowd ’91, partner at Dunnington Bartholow & Miller, was interviewed by the New York Law Journal about the firm’s business operations.

We maintain all the good qualities of an old-fashioned, client-friendly firm, such as putting a premium on efficient solutions and collaboration.  This outlook continues to pay off as we see a unique opportunity in the current market to deliver high-quality services at an attractive price point to sophisticated, cost conscious, mid-market corporations and individuals who are tired of big-law and don’t want to chase multiple specialists to get a straight answer.

Dunnington’s diversity of practice areas and collegial atmosphere gives us a tremendous advantage in retaining young lawyers once they join us.   We are committed to mentorship that is built into our daily routines.

The biggest development has been improving the quality of remote lawyering.  We now have terrific remote access to documents and to each other that enables seamless interaction worldwide.  We are now rolling out new case management software.

Our recent new focus on international work has been innovative and remarkable. We started hiring international LLMs, mainly from Fordham Law School as law clerks, started publishing articles of interest to an international clientele and become more active in internationally-oriented organizations.
