Barack Ferrazzano Names New Director of Attorney Development & Recruiting
Barack Ferrazzano is pleased to announce Jodi M. Dalton as the firm's Director of Attorney Development & Recruiting. Jodi will lead the firm’s continued growth through talent acquisition, professional development, diversity, equity and inclusive initiatives. She is a seasoned, measured law firm professional with significant experience and insight in leading staff, onboarding and integrating lawyers, serving as a conduit between cross-functional teams, managing large-scale events and developing and maintaining key firm relationships. Prior to joining BFKN, Jodi was a Senior Business Development Manager at Reed Smith, where she was integral in the merging of the US and EME commercial disputes practices into one single, global group – requiring seamless coordination across many platforms that encouraged and supported ongoing collaboration of lawyers across a global platform. In addition to her focus in the office, Jodi spends time with her family supporting a variety of programs with organizations and institutions that concentrate on the well-being of women and children.
"We are thrilled to welcome Jodi Dalton to our management team at BFKN. Jodi’s vast experience working closely with all levels and roles of legal staff as well as leading a variety of professional development and DEI initiatives make her a perfect fit and great addition to the firm." – Roger H.

About the Firm
Founded in 1984 as an alternative to the traditional large law firm, BFKN has steadily grown to over 130 attorneys and paralegals. The firm aims to provide extraordinary service in a wide range of industries for each of our 16 core practice areas. Without the overhead of large, multi-office firms, we have the flexibility to serve our clients in a global capacity — when, where, and how they need us. In doing so, we successfully serve large multi-national corporations in all manners of legal transactions and matters. Our business model is predicated upon having a deep understanding of our clients’ businesses and the development of long-lasting relationships, which yield great efficiencies. Our lawyer retention rate is extremely high, with very few of our attorneys or paralegals leaving to pursue legal careers at other law firms. As a result, we are able to provide a consistent team of professionals, enhancing our client relationships and allowing us to become increasingly cost-efficient in addressing our clients’ legal needs.
