Dennis B. Kass and Steven D. Manning Reflect on New Chapter with the Daily Journal

March 20, 2024

After announcing that Dennis B. Kass will be the new Firm Managing Partner, he and Steven D. Manning took some time to chat and reflect on this transition with the Daily Journal. “It has been the greatest privilege and honor of my life to serve as managing partner,” Manning said. “I am very proud of what our firm has accomplished and together, we’re going to continue to break barriers.” Manning is not going anywhere as he will still play a prominent role in shaping the future of the firm. “We’re building, growing, and we’re excited for what’s to come in the firm’s next chapter,” Kass said. He still vividly remembers when Manning hired him as a law clerk 40 years ago and only hopes to be half the leader he is.

Kass, a seasoned litigator and a respected leader within the legal community, brings to the role a wealth of experience following a remarkable legal career spanning over 35 years. Garnering numerous awards for his trial skills, he has tried many high-profile and high-exposure cases across a wide spectrum of practice areas. His expertise and strategic vision have been instrumental in shaping the firm’s growth and maintaining its reputation as a leader in the legal industry.
