Ninety-five years ago, in 1928, a trio of jurists, F. Morse Archer Jr., William Boyle and Frederick P. Greiner, formed Archer & Greiner. They started the firm with the express goal of providing an alternative to Philadelphia firms, offering the same caliber of legal services. Opening the firm’s first office in Camden, they emphasized integrity, devotion to the client and superior legal counsel — tenets that Archer attorneys still embrace today.
For over nine decades, the firm has been providing the highest-quality legal representation in a broad range of disciplines.
Commenting on the anniversary, Deborah Hays, chair of the firm’s board of directors, said: “Much has changed in the legal and business world over the past 95 years. However, the legacy of our founders continues strongly at Archer today and is the cornerstone of the continued growth and success that the firm has been able to achieve. Commitment to our clients, the legal profession and the communities which we serve is the hallmark of every Archer employee (both past and present). I am grateful to work alongside our talented, diverse and dedicated team every day. And, I am especially thankful to our clients for trusting Archer with all of their ever-evolving legal needs.”
Archer President Christopher Gibson said: “No firm reaches a 95-year milestone without earning and keeping the trust of the clients it serves and its employees. I’m extremely proud of our team and all that we’ve accomplished over the years. We have an incredibly talented, smart and dedicated group of attorneys and professional staff, and the core values that have always been the foundation of our firm, such as integrity, commitment, innovation and service, will be what carry us forward for years to come.”
Over the years, Archer has continued to open new offices and grow existing practices, providing full-service litigation and transactional legal services to clients ranging from Fortune 100 corporations and small and middle-market companies, to closely-held and family-owned businesses. With over 175 attorneys spanning nine offices, the firm serves clients’ interests across a wide-range of industries.
From the firm’s founding through today, Archer has earned a reputation as a preeminent law firm. This milestone is a testament to the firm’s long-term relationships with its clients, dedication to its employees and steadfast commitment to diversity & inclusion, pro bono services and community engagement. It’s how the firm has operated for 95 years; it’s the Archer way.
