Palmer, Lombardi & Donohue Profiled in Daily Journal

In the Daily Journal, Palmer, Lombardi & Donohue discusses why national securities, financial services and real estate firms, such as UBS, JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Starbucks, Oppenheimer, First Industrial Realty Trust Inc. and American Express Co., turn to the firm for its litigation expertise. Since its inception 11 years ago, the firm has grown to 20 lawyers. Palmer, Lombardi & Donohue credits its progress to careful hiring, diversifying its practice areas and carrying no debt.

“After 11 years of experience, we think we have a formula for doing things right, and we’re in an environment now where we have good people and we can compete with a lot of bigger firms and develop more business,” said Tom Lombardi, a founding partner. The firm prides itself on its careful planning for the future, and what the partners call “organic growth.”

Additionally, the Daily Journal reporter reached out to Mark LoSacco, chief litigation counsel for American Express Co., and a long-time client of the firm who commented, “In my line of business, I seldom get pitch meetings that lead to work…But when they came in, the conversation was much more around the practical reasons for lawsuits and how to handle them in a cost-effective manner – not your standard speech about what great lawyers they were and how effective. They presented a real road map for how they think about cases…and their approach to reducing the burden on the company.”
