Jeffery A. Dailey and Gay Parks Rainville Co-Found New Litigation Boutique, Dailey LLP

The mission of the former Akin Gump and Pepper Hamilton partners is to best serve clients with a “law firm model for a new era.”

April 1, 2019, Philadelphia, PA — Jeffery A. Dailey and Gay Parks Rainville have launched a boutique litigation firm, Dailey LLP, with offices in Philadelphia, New York City and Media, PA.

“After decades of handling some of the biggest cases at two of the world’s largest firms, we wanted to start a firm with experienced attorneys and a unique value proposition for clients,” says Dailey, who spent 19 years at Akin Gump. The Dailey LLP team of attorneys will offer clients deep expertise and experience handling high-stakes litigation, arbitrations and investigations, and an approach that clients are now actively seeking in their legal counsel.

Several recent legal surveys have noted the trend of companies shifting work to experienced boutique firms. The 2018 Altman Weil Chief Legal Officer Survey found that more than 30 percent of Chief Legal Officers are shifting work and “are successfully using smaller law firms that offer quality work and service at considerable reductions in cost.”

Says Gay Parks Rainville: “By using more experienced attorneys and integrated and innovative technology, our approach truly focuses on client needs, eliminates traditional law firm inefficiencies and administrative bloat, and produces better client results at a lower overall cost.”

Dailey and Rainville have represented clients in complex, high-profile litigation including matters related to Madoff and the 2008 Financial Crisis. Dailey LLP’s focus will be on complex commercial litigation, class actions, shareholder and derivative litigation, and professional liability matters for accounting firms.

Dailey LLP’s offices are located at 1650 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103; 218 W. Front Street, Media, PA 19063; and 1250 Broadway, New York, NY 10001.
