By: LEAN Staff

Barclay Damon LLP recently announced its combination with Menter, Rudin & Trivelpiece, P.C., a firm widely known for its longstanding leadership in commercial bankruptcy cases.

Effective August 1, 2018, the 14 attorneys of the Syracuse-based Menter firm and its paralegals and staff joined Barclay Damon, which will continue to be the name of the combined firm.

Over its 65-year history, Menter has emerged as the leading regional law firm in the areas of bankruptcy, creditor rights, financial restructuring, and distressed asset and insolvency counseling. Menter brings decades of experience in business litigation, commercial lending, real property tax, construction, and employment law.

Menter’s president and CEO, Jeffrey A. Dove, will help lead Barclay Damon’s substantially expanded Restructuring, Bankruptcy & Creditors’ Rights Practice Area as a new co-chair of the team.

“We could not be more excited about this move,” said Dove. “To join a firm of Barclay Damon’s caliber and geographic reach that has excellent attorneys and well-established practices is the optimal next step for us, and will be invaluable to the clients we serve.”

Barclay Damon was formed in 2015 with the combination of Hiscock & Barclay and the Buffalo-based firm Damon Morey. At nearly 300 lawyers, Barclay Damon is a leading regional firm.

LEAN member Rob Liddell said, “The new combination of firms defines synergy. I believe our new firm is the pre-eminent Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Right firm in the region putting us in position to better serve our clients.”
