About the Name

Our firm's namesake was a Roman statesman and one of the heroes of early Rome. Cincinnatus was a model of virtue and simplicity. He is best known for successfully leading his country against an enemy armed with new weapons and offensive tactics. Cincinnatus promptly resigned his position once the crisis was over and returned to his life as a farmer to plant seeds, and grow and harvest his crops. The City of Cincinnati was named in his honor. His model leadership is an inspiration for our firm.
