If you had told me when we started our firm five years ago that we would be able to attract a superstar like Larry Tribe, I would have told you that you were nuts. For obvious reasons, we are so honored and excited to be able to work on cases with one of the greatest legal minds on the many important issues facing our clients and nation today.
— Roberta Kaplan, one of the founding partners of Kaplan Hecker & Fink, in comments given to the American Lawyer, concerning the firm’s recent hiring of Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe, a constitutional legal scholar and frequent Supreme Court advocate. “I wanted to be connected with a firm that cares about what I care about,” Tribe said. “They have so many talented lawyers that I follow closely, including Roberta, and they care about LGBTQ rights.” Congratulations to Professor Tribe and the firm.
