About Us

"We have a great business acumen. We are tighter and more efficient than ever before. We are better lawyers and better business people."

-Robert D. Lang, Partner

"We are terrific listeners to our clients. We listen to our clients long and hard before we start assisting them. We understand where the client wants to go. We are driven to meet that objective. We are not the type of lawyers who tell clients ‘I’m glad you came to me because you wanted to do X, but you can’t do X and here’s why.’ We don’t take that approach. If a client wants to get to X we tell them how to get to X. The answer is never a no. The answer is this is how we can reach our client’s objective. That is one of the great strengths of this firm."

-Robert D. Lang, Partner

"To be a good law firm as opposed to a collection of lawyers you have to advance the profession itself. Many of our attorneys are involved in their communities in churches, Boards of Education, and associations."

-Peter Stroili, Partner

"The top three attributes of D’Amato & Lynch, LLP are experience, creativity and judgment."

-Neal Glazer, Partner

"We are much more creative in getting deals done than other firms would be because of our experience."

-Neal Glazer, Partner

"Anyone can look up the law. That’s the easy part. We are in rooms across the negotiating table from the top lawyers in the country, in front of the top judges in the country, on the biggest cases in the county. That’s how we gained our experience, and you can’t get that experience out of a book."

-Neal Glazer, Partner

"Our experience sets us apart. We have far greater experience than most other insurance firms because of exposure to the widest range of insurance coverage cases both in type and magnitude. Over the years we’ve been exposed to more different types of insurance coverage cases and bigger cases than pretty much any firm in the country."

-Neal Glazer, Partner

"We are imaginative. We look for and find solutions. Imagination is what allows us to take into account all of the appropriate factors and then identify and figure out ways to pursue practical solutions."

-Michael Manire, Partner

"We are collegial. The collegial nature is such that we share briefs, research and experience with one another. Even though a client may be working with one partner or one small group at the firm, we have full and absolute access to everyone at D’Amato & Lynch. Clients should know that we don’t compete with each other within the firm."

-Mary Jo Barry, Partner

"We can pick up the phone and call the top mediators and judges in the country and they know us personally. Our contacts help us move quickly for our clients."

-Mary Jo Barry, Partner

"We have 25-30 years of experience in management liability. One of the mistakes people make is thinking we are just a D&O firm. But we have 30 plus years experience in D&O, Lawyer’s Liability, Accountant’s Liability, Insurance Company E&O, Broker/Dealer E&O, Reinsurance depth, regulatory depth."

-Mary Jo Barry, Partner

"If you hire a partner, that partner is going to be intimately involved in what you hired us for. We don’t put twenty-five associates on a case. We are very lean and efficient."

-Mary Jo Barry, Partner

"We have a core group of lawyers who were trained as corporate lawyers. They have the ability to dig in and understand exactly what’s involved in the issues of securities and other corporate litigation. Most other insurance firms do not have attorneys trained as corporate lawyers."

-Luke Lynch, Jr., Partner

"We understand insurance coverage better than anyone else. We have more experience in the development of insurance products than any other firm. We understand the risks and issues in litigation coverage by insurers better than anyone. We will continue to be viewed as a firm that can be relied on in difficult situations and make good judgments. We are very experienced in negotiating the best results for our clients."

-Luke Lynch, Jr., Partner

"We have the deepest experience of any firm in handling directors and officers and other management with professional liability matters."

-Luke Lynch, Jr., Partner
