Since its formation in 1980, German Gallagher & Murtagh has grown steadily in terms of size, fields of substantive practice and stature in the legal community. The founding members already had extensive legal careers and experience prior to the inception of the firm. They, and the other newer members of the firm, have continued to expand and develop that experience over the intervening years. The growth of the firm reflects both the energy and enthusiasm of its members and the confidence placed in its capabilities by its clients.
