About Murphy & McGonigle
Murphy & McGonigle, founded in 2010, was created based on an innovative law firm model that rigorously controls overhead while providing its attorneys and clients with state-of-the-art technology and litigation support to ensure both world-class service and maximum cost-efficiency. In the years since the financial crisis, that model has become increasingly attractive for clients in the financial services industry which has driven the rapid growth of the law firm.
For the fifth year in a row, U.S. News & Best Lawyers selected Murphy & McGonigle as a National Tier One Law Firm. This year, we were honored in Securities Regulation, Litigation – Securities, and Corporate Law. Only 25 firms received National Tier One recognition in all three areas with Murphy & McGonigle as the youngest and smallest firm among those 25 listed, by far.
Murphy & McGonigle serves the litigation, enforcement defense, and regulatory counseling needs of clients across the full spectrum of the financial services industry – from national banks, broker-dealers, investment advisers, and hedge funds, to national and international securities markets and exchanges.
