Alan Levin Stepping Down as Managing Partner at Barnes & Thornburg

The lengthy tenure of Alan Levin as the leader of Barnes & Thornburg is coming to a close, according to The Am Law Daily.

The firm is headquartered in Indianapolis and is an Am Law 100 firm. It announced that Levin will step down as managing partner on November 1 to make room for his successor, Robert Grand.

Levin was elected to the position in 1997 and has spent 17 years at the top of the firm. He has been re-elected to six, three-year terms, with the most recent coming in December of 2012. The firm has 522 lawyers across 12 offices in the United States.

Levin’s professional experience has only been with this firm, starting in 1982 as an associate at what was then Barnes, Hickam, Pantzer & Boyd.

“I got to experience a [law firm] merger well before mergers were becoming the popular thing,” Levin joked. “But over the years we’ve tried to tried to focus on growing laterally instead.”

“We’ve certainly had discussions with other firms, but nothing that ever got too serious,” Levin said. “You always have to listen, but we pride ourselves on our democratic nature. We’re not going to do something like that unless an overwhelming majority of our partners support it.”

Levin said that the firm is still focused on expanding its reach in Columbus, Atlanta and Los Angeles. These cities have seen the firm open offices in the past couple of years. The Los Angeles office had just six lawyers in 2011. It now boasts 30 lawyers.

“Now more than half of our lawyers have come from outside the firm,” Levin says. “So of course our culture has evolved. And when you’re recruiting others, you also have to remember to tend to your own house so your people believe they’re being treated in a fair manner.”
