Murtha Cullina Celebrates 75th Anniversary
On Wednesday evening, May 4, hundreds of invited guests gathered in the CityPlace Atrium to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Murtha Cullina LLP.
Among the dignitaries on hand to mark the occasion were Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra and Attorney General George Jepsen.
Elizabeth Stewart, managing partner, spoke to the group of more than 300 guests about the firm’s earliest clients, many that remained clients to this day and were present in the audience. She reflected that while the firm has changed dramatically over the years, the firm’s strength continues to be its people. She said, “In a recent conversation with retired partner Donald Richter, he told me he had a great deal of respect for everyone in the firm, from the newest messenger in the mailroom to the most senior partner. I think this speaks to the culture at Murtha that has allowed us to serve our clients for 75 years.” In closing, Ms. Stewart thanked everyone as the firm looks forward to its next 25 years.
Joining in the festivities with clients were family members of the original partners, firm alumni, and current and past staff.
