McAfee & Taft announces move of growing Tulsa office to Mapco Plaza

July 9, 2010

Having more than doubled in size since its opening two years ago, McAfee & Taft is excited to announce the move of its Tulsa office to newly renovated and expanded offices in Mapco Plaza, located at 1717 S. Boulder. The move marks the latest in a decade-long series of growth initiatives for the state’s largest law firm, allowing for the office’s continued expansion and providing clients with greater, more convenient access to the firm’s comprehensive legal and business counseling service offerings.

“From the very beginning, our plan was to expand our Tulsa office to more than 30 lawyers within two to five years, and we are on track to do just that,” said managing director Richard Nix.

“Since opening our doors in Tulsa in May 2008, we have deliberately set out to enhance our core team by recruiting some of the area’s best and brightest talent, adding professionals with proven track records for being “go-to” lawyers in the areas of employment law and labor relations, intellectual property, commercial litigation, environmental and regulatory matters, and corporate and commercial transactions,” said Nix. “We have also been extremely pleased with our efforts to recruit high-quality associate attorneys, as we believe this provides our clients with the depth of talent, service and efficiency they require now and the continuity of relationships and service they value over the long run.”

Since its inception in 1952, McAfee & Taft has evolved from a small entrepreneurial firm founded by Oklahoma pioneer corporate and tax attorneys Kenneth McAfee & Richard Taft into a full-service firm serving clients across the state and throughout the region, as well as around the world. Despite its now-global reach, the firm attributes much of its growth in recent years to the success of its Oklahoma clients, which includes many of the state’s largest employers as well as emerging companies and closely-held family businesses. The firm also has extensive reach across a broad spectrum of industries, including healthcare, manufacturing, oil and gas, aerospace, sports and gaming, entertainment, agriculture and equine, renewable and sustainable energy, construction and development, and midstream and transportation.

While the firm maintains offices in both Tulsa and Oklahoma City, the firm remains steadfastly committed to working collaboratively as a single unit, offering all clients full access to the firm’s extensive resources, which includes more than 150 support staff, the use of industry-leading technology, worldwide networks of affiliated law firms, and 156 lawyers with expertise and significant depth in a wide range of legal disciplines. Significant investments in those resources over the years, said Nix, have greatly contributed to the firm’s success and the increasing value it is able to offer clients.

McAfee & Taft is one of the largest, most experienced law firms in the region, serving clients nationally and internationally in the areas of aviation, business law, business restructuring and bankruptcy, corporate and securities, employee benefits, entertainment law, environmental law, healthcare, intellectual property, labor and employment, litigation, oil and gas, real estate and tax and family wealth.  The firm employs nearly 300 Oklahomans, including 156 attorneys.
