View this email in your browser
2016 was a great year for Carrington Coleman.  We continued to grow our corporate and transactional practice, expanded our Intellectual Property  practice group, and strengthened our reputation as the firm of choice for cutting-edge and complex litigation.

Our most important goal, always, is to serve the many good clients and friends with whom we have worked, some for many decades, and others for the first time this past year.  You are the measure of our success.

As Managing Partner, I want to thank you for being our clients and friends.  I hope you will join me in celebrating the growth, awards, and recognitions of our excellent attorneys.  We wish you the very best in 2017.
