A Message from our Co-CEOs

Welcome to Eckert Seamans. As co-CEOs of the firm, we are privileged to combine our complementary backgrounds in the business and litigation divisions to serve the firm as a team. As chair and former chair of the Financial Services Litigation Group and the Hospitality Group, we have led some of the firm’s most dynamic and profitable practices. The opportunity for us to lead together as co-CEOs will allow our diversity of ideas and viewpoints to enhance the strength and adaptability of the firm. Sharing the CEO responsibilities also allows us to continue to remain active in our successful legal practices while handling day-to-day operations of the firm as well as strategic planning.

Throughout the years, Eckert Seamans has grown strategically in scope, footprint, and reach. Our focus has never wavered from providing our clients with exceptional judgment, service, and value, which are the standards by which we evaluate our own performance each and every day. Clients trust us to help them capitalize on their most promising opportunities and find solutions to their most pressing problems because that is what we do best. We never take this trust for granted—we work hard to prove each and every day that your confidence in us is well placed and that we add value to your business.

Collaboration, value, and community – reoccurring themes you may notice throughout the website – are the three pillars on which our exceptional client service stands. All of our clients receive the attention of highly skilled and committed attorneys through our coordinated, multi-disciplinary team approach. This collaboration allows us to help our clients achieve their goals in the most effective and efficient manner possible, making Eckert Seamans one of the best values in today’s legal landscape. And in our communities, we are honored to donate our time and resources to nearly 500 organizations that help make life better for those in need.

We are very proud of what our colleagues have developed together at Eckert Seamans, and we welcome the opportunity to tell you more about our firm. We also welcome your ideas on how we can best serve you. If we can ever be of assistance or answer any questions about the firm, we hope you will call us directly at 412.566.5953 or 412.566.2584.

Thank you for visiting with us.

Dorothy A. Davis and Timothy Q. Hudak
