Press Coverage


There was extensive press coverage of the events of 9/11 and its aftermath. There follows a selection of the media reporting on September 11, 2001 that mentioned the Firmís situation following the events of 9/11 and its recovery efforts. Much of the early coverage that mentioned the Firm dealt with the effects of the events on the Firm and others similarly situated. The Firm had a problem that occurred early in the morning of the 13th of September. The New York Law Journal coverage of the situation in the World Trade Center contained language that implied that there was doubt as to whether Thacher Proffitt was going to be able to continue. This early coverage was a concern so the Firm determined to make sure that the world knew that it had survived, intended to continue in the practice as a law firm, and was planning and acting accordingly. The Firm was proactive in this regard. Media coverage turned out in the end to be very helpful in reassuring clients and staff that the Firm was still all right.. Overall, the Firm was generally satisfied with the nature of the coverage and believes that it had a positive effect on its partners, staff and clients and assisted in the recovery efforts.
