Background - About (Landing)


Most people assume the word "strong" simply means powerful.

We beg to differ.

It's how we get legal work done.

What’s in a word? To 500+ lawyers, everything.

Strong gets results. Strong sweats the details. Strong is in it for the long haul. Strong takes educated risks. Strong is responsive. Strong is creative. Strong makes a difference. To you. To us. And sometimes, to the world at large. Strong matters because strong is how we get legal work done.

Some see a duck. We see a strong reminder of how we’re different.

One day years ago, someone left a rubber duck in the rather serious fountain that stands in our firm headquarters. Over the years, the duck population has grown, along with our sense of humor—and belief that sophisticated, complex law need not be practiced in an ivory tower. Rather, it happens with both feet firmly planted on the ground.
