Attorneys invest in model that fits for all

When Barclay Damon was formed after the merger of Damon Morey and Hiscock & Barclay, officials at Buffalo's third-largest firm knew they would need a hyper-communicative model and aggressive management team to follow through if lofty goals were to be met.

That made it easier for Peter Marlette and James Domagalski, co-managing directors of the local office, to lead the firm in creating something new by becoming a super-regional firm in Upstate New York while plugging into the Buffalo renaissance. The firm also strengthened many of its practices.
