Since 1999, Hassan Murphy has been the managing partner of Murphy, Falcon & Murphy, providing the strategic vision which powers the firm’s growth. He also remains an active attorney and negotiator, directly overseeing Murphy, Falcon & Murphy’s largest and most complex cases. He has served as lead and co-lead counsel in cases which resulted in settlements in excess of $300 million, including negotiating a $54 million settlement for an environmental torts case without ever filing suit.
In a wide variety of complex litigation situations, Mr. Murphy demonstrates that he is a consummate businessman. He’s been described as an “architect of the deal,” “a visionary,” and an “unbelievable negotiator.” His passion for navigating complex commercial cases is matched by a genuine enthusiasm for the courtroom.
A trial lawyer at heart, Mr. Murphy maintains an active role in the courtroom representing Murphy, Falcon & Murphy’s wide-range of clients, from corporate to consumer. The man himself puts it best: “To make the point without understanding how it fits within the overall scheme of success is what 95% of the world’s lawyers do. To make the point in a way that fits into your strategy, that’s an art form.”
After receiving his bachelor’s degree from Williams College in 1990, Mr. Murphy earned his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center in 1994.
