Law Firm ‘McLane’ Changes Its Name

A member of the New England Council, formerly known as McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton has changed its name to McLane Middleton.

The law firm conducted surveys, interviewed employees, and performed a competitive analysis in order to properly research the name change opportunity. Ultimately, the decision on the name reflects the firm’s dedication to John McLane, who started the firm in 1919, and to their “icon” President Jack Middleton, who still practices at the firm at age 86. Traditionally, law firms list key partners in their legal names, but increasingly firms have been shortening their names, according to McLane Middleton’s press release.

“The name McLane Middleton reminds every lawyer and professional team member who represents the firm of the utmost importance we put on being of service to all,” said CEO Cathy Schmidt. “The change to McLane Middleton is designed to position the firm for the next 100 years offering legal services to the community.”
