Firm Overview

Dunning Rievman & MacDonald LLP ("DR&M") specializes in dispute resolution (litigation and arbitration, domestic and international), M&A and other commercial transactions, project finance, corporate matters and tax. DR&M was founded in 2019 with the intention of combining the experience and quality of a larger firm with the more personal approach of a boutique firm. The firm has grown steadily since 2019 but has stayed true to these purposes. Prior to working at DR&M, all our partners gained experience at large U.S. and international law firms.

Given our firm’s structure, we have great flexibility to adapt to our client’s specific needs. We are known to be extremely efficient and responsive. DR&M also has significant capabilities to help international clients, with several multilingual attorneys admitted to practice in other jurisdictions. We are capable to provide legal advice, at a native level, in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese and Turkish.

We represent both plaintiffs and defendants in multiple fora.

We pride ourselves on being reasonable and commercially minded. Because most industries in which our clients operate are sensitive to commercial relations dealing with multiples stakeholders, we know that many of the potential disputes are, or should be, resolved amicably through commercial agreements.
