David T. Brown, firm Chairman, was cited in an article in Chicago Lawyer Magazine that examined some deeper comparisons with midsize and large firms, and how the midsize variety fits into the overall legal services landscape.

Chicago's midsize firms, in the midst of a struggling economic recovery, manage unique business models and typically resist the urge to merge or grow beyond the title of midsize firm.
