The law firm of Martin Banks, founded in Philadelphia in 1979, has changed its name to simply Martin LLC.
"All too often, law firm names change because a partner joins or leaves," said the equity partners of the firm in a joint statement. "The external focus, then, shifts to the people involved instead of on the firm's work. The vision of George Martin when establishing this firm over three decades ago was simple: help Pennsylvania's injured and disabled workers. After much reflection, our firm has decided to be known as 'Martin LLC,' with a name as simple and strong as the mission on which we were founded.
