Buckley announces name and leadership changes

WASHINGTON, Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Buckley Sandler LLP, a premier national law firm focused on financial services, white collar defense, and complex civil litigation, has changed its name to Buckley LLP and reorganized its governance structure and leadership team. The decision to shorten the firm's name acknowledges the reality of how the firm is recognized in the legal marketplace and comes as Buckley this year marks its 10th anniversary and prepares to move its Washington, D.C., offices to 2001 M Street N.W. in the spring.

Benjamin B. Klubes was named Buckley's Managing Partner and Christopher M. Witeck was named Chief Operating Partner. Klubes and Witeck will serve on a newly formed partner Board, which replaces the firm's Executive Committee as well as several other partner committees. David S. Krakoff, John P. Kromer, Jeffrey P. Naimon, Clinton R. Rockwell, Michelle L. Rogers, and Jonice Gray Tucker will also serve on the Board. Klubes and Kromer previously served as Co-Managing Partners for 10 years; Witeck was previously a member of the Executive Committee and Deputy Managing Partner.

"The revised name and streamlined governance structure are part of our broader effort to position the firm for its next decade of growth," said Klubes. "We move forward following the principles that the firm was founded on: delivering best-in-class client service, recruiting and developing a diverse, talented team of legal professionals, and innovating through strategic investments and new technologies, such as the firm's APPROVED licensing service and FORTÉ e-discovery solution."

"Our new governance structure is designed to simplify our organization, reduce management time, and allow partners to devote more energy to client service, which is our highest priority," said Witeck. "What won't change for our clients is the talent and dedication of the people they work with, the quality of work we deliver, and our mission to provide greater efficiency and value."
