Tully Rinckey PLLC Founding Partner, Mathew B. Tully, has been appointed to the District of Columbia Bar Law Practice Management Steering Committee. The Committee of seven assists D.C. Bar members in managing their law practices more efficiently and focuses on tackling prevailing legal issues facing law firms. Within the last year, the primary focus of the Committee has been to provide programming and services that enhance business practices to help law firms thrive in this economy.
In early 2008, Albany, New York-based Tully Rinckey PLLC expanded to Washington, D.C. Within two years of establishing the three-attorney D.C. office, the firm now employs eleven fulltime attorneys and six support staff members. In 2009, the Washington Business Journal named Tully Rinckey PLLC one of the “Best Places to Work,” placing first in the small business category. The firm anticipates opening new offices in Northern Virginia and Maryland in the next 6 to 24 months, employing as many as twenty-five attorneys. As the leader of one of the few law firms prospering in this economy, Mr. Tully hopes to impart his knowledge and growth experience to the Committee.
“I am honored to be a part of the D.C. Bar Law Practice Management Steering Committee, helping law firms, attorneys, and law students better understand the business of law,” said Mr. Tully. “While law firms continue to restructure themselves after the economic downturn, it is more important now than ever that firms understand how to save money while still retaining excellent legal counsel and superior legal services.”
With close to a decade of law management experience, Mr. Tully has been named one of the “Top 40 Under 40” Most Influential Business Leaders by the Albany, New York Business Review, as well as named to the 2008 Marquis Who’s Who in Emerging Leaders and the 2007 Who’s Who in American Law. Mr. Tully is currently a Major in the New York National Guard and has recently been awarded the impressive Air Force Space Badge to his completion of space training.
