Law360 Profiles New Lateral Partner John Duffy

Law360 highlighted new partner John J. Duffy with a profile on Duffy's practice. 

Duffy told Law360 that he "is excited for the bigger footprint that his new firm would provide..." and "emphasized Swanson Martin's 'national reputation of trying cases, including difficult ones involving product manufacturers or professionals.'" Duffy's practice focuses on legal ethics and malpractice cases and product liability class actions.

According to the article:

For him, getting to work on a dynamic slate of cases is a big draw for his focus areas. His decision to specialize in legal malpractice work has a lot to do with his clientele, Duffy explained.

"I love representing lawyers," he said. "They're intelligent, excellent clients, and their cases are always interesting; you get into a new area of law pretty much every time." 
The article also stated: 

Confidentiality is also important in Duffy's mass tort practice, as it weaves into the potentially sensitive topic of assisted reproduction. 

"It's a tricky area of practice," Duffy said. He has been on both sides of mass tort cases, and believes that his ability to see it from the perspectives of the product manufacturer, the lab personnel and the plaintiffs who sought to have a biological child had been helpful for his approach.
