Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig takes an innovative approach to law firm leadership, breaking the traditional mold by having a C-Suite of seasoned, dedicated executives that are non lawyers. Our C-level leaders work together to ensure the firm stays true to its established plans and policies.

This approach allows firm leaders to apply corporate principles to streamline Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig operations to run like a business. Our operational management lifts administrative and operational burdens from our DBL attorneys, which allows them to dedicate more time and focus on clients and their legal needs.
