Pfalzgraf, the managing partner of Pfalzgraf's firm, stated that they were building a new type of law firm. "And we're still up and coming, and kind of scrappy. Rupp stated that they realized there was a bigger firm that could survive beyond our retirements and that we all didn't want to retire simultaneously. "All four of our equity partners are younger than me and will continue to practice law after I retire," Rupp said. Rupp stated that the goal was to increase ownership of the firm by more people. Rupp stated that the firm was an early adopter for online law libraries and video conferencing technology. However, it has always been keen to seize opportunities to become entrepreneurial. They have also expanded into emerging areas such as civil rights since 2018, when they began. Rupp stated that he saw a technological opportunity to industrialize the space and move in. "We strive to be flexible when it comes to new areas of practice. We encourage them to try new things, even with all the equity we have. He said, "We have grown faster than Tony and me ever imagined, but I believe we are just scratching the surface." "It would not surprise me if there are over 100 lawyers by the time Tony and myself are ready to retire from the business.
