Rupp Baase: BNP Member Spotlight

Managing Partner, David R. Pfalzgraf shares his insights on practicing law in the Buffalo Niagara region and his firm’s gratitude for the Buffalo Niagara Partnership in the BNP Member Spotlight.

As David Pfalzgraf looks out the window of his office in the historic Liberty Building, he sees two large construction cranes at work on the nearby Medical Campus in Buffalo. It is an inspiring sight that the managing partner of Rupp Baase Pfalzgraf Cunningham LLC Attorneys says sums up the firm’s view of the current state of practicing law in the Buffalo Niagara region.

“We have never been more encouraged or excited about the future of the business community in Western New York,” Pfalzgraf says. “We founded our firm more than 15 years ago in Buffalo with an entrepreneurial and opportunistic spirit meant to change some old habits in the way law is practiced. Now, more than ever, that same spirit is evident across the area with incredibly positive changes underway.”
