Industry veteran retains leadership, bolstered by additional expertise.

Mancini•Duffy has retained a new senior design professional to bolster its law firm practice led by industry veteran Dina Frank, AIA,IIDA, principal and president emeritus. Stephen Gertz, a widely recognized expert in the design of corporate offices, with particular expertise and extensive experience with law firms has joined the team as the Director of its Law Firm practice.

Mr. Gertz comes to Mancini•Duffy with nearly four decades of experience as Executive Vice President and Principal with Keiser Associates. There, he brought, designed, and managed a broad range of law firm projects including those for Mound Cotton Wollan & Greengrass, LLP and BuckleySandler, LLP. His most recent finished work was a renovation project for Morgan Lewis & Bockius, LLP. The work involved upgrades to a 14,000 square-foot conference center, the integration of full AV systems in all rooms and a new 25,000 square-foot practice floor featuring new planning and design standards which were implemented throughout the firm. 
His success in developing working relationships—some as much as 20 years long—with his clients has led many of them to follow him to Mancini•Duffy, where he can effectively continue to serve them in a larger, more diversified firm with a strong history of quality design and service. Gertz holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Notre Dame.
“As client and industry needs change, we felt it time to deepen our expertise and bring Stephen to our team. His insight will further enable Mancini•Duffy to make bold, prudent moves in the future, especially as the firm moves into its next 100 years,” said Dina Frank. “We are excited to add Stephen’s skills to the law firm practice team, and I am thrilled to be working with him.”
Mancini•Duffy’s law firm practice has served many of the nation’s premiere legal powerhouse firms, including Latham & Watkins, Dorsey & Whitney and Stroock & Stroock & Lavan.
