Joseph English will tell you that every member of Taylor English Duma LLP is a titan, said his colleagues. However, this collective mindset reflects his leadership style of elevating others and never personally seeking the limelight. “For Joe, the notion of having a purpose-built law firm extends beyond the walls of the firm,” said his staff. “His entire career, Joe has worked to cultivate meaningful relationships through his professional and personal interactions with the community and the legal and business community at large.”

Taylor English Duma LLP is a full-service business law firm headquartered in Atlanta. The firm was founded on the belief that a sustainable law firm model must start from the premise of delivering value to the customer.

The concept for the Taylor English Duma LLP model was born from a small group of legal leaders, including Marc Taylor, Joseph English and Scott Duma, who wanted to create a purpose-built firm with a flexible model. The founders executed on this client-centered vision by recruiting driven and diverse entrepreneurial attorneys with the goal of being a best-in-class national law firm.

Today, the firm’s growth in numbers and national footprint has grown to approximately 200 attorneys in 16 states across the United States.

Under English’s guidance, the firm has joined the Geneva Group International, the largest international consortium of law, accounting and consulting firms in the world. As a result, English was named a 2023 GGI Firm Member of the Year at GGI’s World Conference in Lisbon, Portugal.

English strives to highlight and reinforce the unique Taylor English Duma organizational culture, both internally and externally. The firm developed 23 business tenets to buttress the cultural foundation under his guidance.

“Our leadership meetings begin with an opening discussion of the Tenet of the Week,” said English. “We have found that this intentional process helps to focus our leadership in framing our decision-making within the context of our culture and our organizational values.”

The values English maintains and displays have left a lasting impact on his team and his clients.

“Being a titan means re-imagining traditional legal services and challenging established industry norms to make a lasting impact,” said his colleagues. “It means investing in people and creating processes that will lead to long-term success for clients and that’s what Joe strives to do on a daily basis.”
