The Firm

Dwyer Murphy Calvert LLP, or DMC, is a business law firm providing legal services to leading entrepreneurs, private companies and private equity, venture capital and strategic investors.

Delivering Exceptional Value

DMC aims to achieve high quality results, while also delivering exceptional value, for our clients.  In order to achieve these dual objectives, we focus on the client and tailor our legal services for each client’s particular needs.  In addition, we reduce the administrative and infrastructure costs that are typically absorbed by clients of mid-size and large firms through innovative firm management and by leveraging technology.

Focused Expertise

We focus our practice on the representation of investors and companies in connection with private placements of debt or equity securities, buyers and sellers in connection with sale transactions/mergers and acquisitions, and start-up and growth companies in a variety of industries in connection with formation, general corporate, limited liability company, partnership and commercial contract matters.  DMC does not handle other transaction practice specialties (such as tax advice) or litigation; instead, when these matters arise, we work closely with a wide range of trusted attorneys who are “best of breed” in their respective areas of specialization.

Experience Matters

DMC’s collective experience includes a broad range of sophisticated transactional matters. Our attorneys have worked with a variety of clients, including start-ups, Fortune 500 companies, angel investors, regional and national venture capital funds and investment/private equity funds with billions of dollars under management. Furthermore, each of DMC’s attorneys has significant experience working at a large, institutional law firm that provided extensive training and experience in transactions of all kinds.  We frequently draw on this background and experience to better serve our clients.
