Blank Rome Celebrates 70 YearsNovember 2016
Dear Friends of Blank Rome:
Did you know that in 1946, Blank Rome started as a Philadelphia-based law firm of just two attorneys, then known as the law offices of Blank & Rudenko? This year we are celebrating our 70th anniversary by reflecting upon the many milestones and successes we have achieved on behalf of our clients, for the communities in which we live and work, and as an innovative firm that continues to grow and evolve.
As a friend of Blank Rome, I invite you to join us in celebrating the hard work and dedication that has transformed us from a small, regional firm to the current-day Blank Rome with 14 offices throughout the U.S. and in Shanghai and more than 620 attorneys.
To commemorate each turning point in our history, we’ve created an animated timeline that will guide you through the years and highlight important occasions along the way. I hope you’ll spend a few moments navigating the facts, photos, interactive maps, and abbreviated history we’ve assembled here:
It has been a true honor to lead Blank Rome through what have been some of our most transformative and successful years. With your ongoing support and confidence in us, we have stayed true to our culture, expanded our reach by practice and geography to meet our clients’ needs, embraced technological advances, affected case law and legislation, and made a positive impact on our communities. Thank you for being a part of our history, and we look forward to what the future brings.
Alan J. Hoffman, Chairman and Managing Partner
