Celebrating One Year as Faegre Drinker
February 1, 2021
To our clients and friends of the firm,
On February 1, 2021 Faegre Drinker celebrates the one-year anniversary of our firm – and what a year it has been. The experiences of 2020 have proven what we knew from the start: this is a firm filled with incredibly talented people who are deeply committed to the success of our clients and each other. Together, we thrived as a newly formed organization during a challenging year and begin our second year as Faegre Drinker with confidence and optimism.
We have much to celebrate as we reflect on our inaugural year. We welcomed nearly 30 lateral partners and counsel to our firm and continue to attract top talent across numerous service areas. We welcomed 17 colleagues to the Faegre Drinker partnership and 46 colleagues as part of our inaugural new associate class. From the beginning we were focused on integration so we could harness our combined capabilities and more effectively serve our clients. And we did this from a virtual environment in order to keep our colleagues, clients and their loved ones healthy and safe.
We could not celebrate this milestone without your partnership. Thank you for your trust and support over the last 12 months. It has been our pleasure to stand alongside you as we faced the opportunities and challenges of 2020. We look forward to continuing to bring you fresh, innovative ideas and delivering excellence – without arrogance – in the year ahead.
