Mudge Rose Guthrie Alexander & Ferdon

Mudge Rose Guthrie Alexander & Ferdon[1] was a prominent New York City law firm tracing its origin back to 1869.[2][3][4] Earlier known as : Mudge, Stern, Baldwin & Todd; later : Nixon, Mudge, Rose, Guthrie, & Alexander;[5] later : Nixon, Mudge, Rose, Guthrie, Alexander & Mitchell;[6] then : Mudge, Rose, Guthrie & Alexander. The firm is known best as the legal launching pad of Richard M. Nixon.[7]

The firm employed some 190 lawyers at the time of dissolution in 1995. Among problems that ultimately destroyed the firm were a long internal fight for leadership, management, and significant client defections. [7][2]
