“We are definitely in a growth mode. We opened three offices last year: Atlanta, Boston and Los Angeles. We continue to grow. We work really hard at integrating our lateral hires and we are probably going to grow some here soon even this year. We acquired the Philadelphia office of Goodell Devries. That was six attorneys and staff who joined our Philadelphia office.”
