Since Mr. Murphy’s son William “Hassan” Murphy, III took the reins as Managing Partner, The Murphy Firm has doubled in size to over 30 lawyers, moving to the towering Alex Brown building close to the revitalized Baltimore waterfront. Hassan is operating on an international level with the same vigor, victory and integrity that his father orchestrated in this region for 20 years. Widely considered one of the best young lawyers in America, the younger Murphy received his legal education from Georgetown University Law Center and is intent on applying the innovative approaches and practices The Murphy Firm is known for to a wider group of clients and legal initiatives around the world. The younger Murphy now sits on the Board of Directors of his grandfather and father’s alumni, The University of Maryland School of Law, where The Murphy Firm is seeking to establish a chair of law.
