Murphy Karber, a Phoenix construction, real estate and business law firm, announced it has added a third partner, Michael A. Cordier.

The firm also announced its new name, Murphy Karber Cordier PLC and unveiled a new logo. The firm will also use the trade name “MKC Law,” taking advantage of the State Bar of Arizona’s recent rule change.

In the late 1990s, Murphy and Cordier were partners at the former Phoenix firm of Robbins & Green, P.A.

“We are thrilled to add Michael and his legal skills and business acumen to the firm,” said Richard B. Murphy, founding partner of Murphy Karber Cordier PLC. “He will allow us to expand the firm’s services to areas we have not traditionally served.”

Cordier most recently served as the managing shareholder of the Phoenix office of DeConcini McDonald Yetwin & Lacy, P.C.

“Richard and I have known Michael since our undergraduate school days at the University of Arizona,” said Robert M. Karber, co- founding partner, Murphy Karber Cordier, PLC. “We are so pleased to have our long-time friend and respected colleague join the firm.”

Cordier represents a wide variety of businesses and individuals in commercial matters and often serves as an outside general counsel for businesses. His areas of focus include business and corporate law, employment and labor law, intellectual property, real estate and commercial transactions and litigation.
