Sarah Duniway and Charlie Maier Assume Managing Partner Roles At Gray Plant Mooty



Previously announced transition takes effect today


MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (April 1, 2015) — Sarah Duniway and Charlie Maier  today officially became Managing Partners of the venerable law firm, Gray Plant Mooty. They now lead approximately 170 lawyers in 11 practice groups spanning the firm’s offices in Minneapolis, Washington, D.C., St. Cloud, Minn., and Fargo, N.D.

Sharing the Managing Partner responsibilities will allow both Duniway and Maier to remain in active practice with existing and future clients, while reflecting the importance Gray Plant Mooty places on collaboration.

“Charlie and I are embracing our new roles with humble excitement,” said Duniway. “Gray Plant Mooty has thrived for nearly 150 years by maintaining an unwavering focus on our clients. We’re excited about extending that legacy in a rapidly evolving business landscape. At the same time, we understand that sustaining the firm’s success will be a direct result of our colleague’s excellence.”

Looking Ahead While Drawing From Past

Duniway and Maier’s optimism stems from a series of positive trends for Gray Plant Mooty. The firm recently opened a Fargo, N.D., office to support its strong business base in the state. Gray Plant Mooty is also experiencing growth in each of its practice groups, due in large part to collaboration, client service and innovation. Underlying everything is a generational shift that now starts at the top of the firm.

Core elements of what has sustained Gray Plant Mooty for generations will not change, however. This includes an unrelenting focus on client relationships, a commitment to the community and an emphasis on maintaining a rewarding workplace culture.

“Gray Plant Mooty has a history of leading from ahead,” said Maier. “From workplace diversity to practice group collaboration and more, we implement and improve practices before they become industry standards. Being stewards of this tradition is a challenge and privilege that Sarah and I have already embraced.”
