  WeissLaw LLP Investigates Duff & Phelps Corporation

Business Wire

NEW YORK -- January 3, 2013

WeissLaw LLP, a national class action and shareholder rights law firm with
offices in New York City and Los Angeles, is investigating possible breaches
of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of
Duff & Phelps Corporation (“D&P” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGS: DUF) arising
from its agreement for D&P to be acquired by The Carlyle Group, Stone Point
Capital LLC, Pictet & Cie and Edmond de Rothschild Group (the “Private Equity
Firms”), in a transaction valued at approximately $665.5 million. Under the
terms of the proposed transaction D&P shareholders will receive $15.55 in cash
for each D&P share they own. This price is below the target price set by
certain securities analysts.

WeissLaw LLP is investigating whether D&P’s Board acted in the best interests
of its public shareholders by actively shopping the Company to maximize
shareholder value for D&P’s public shareholders, prior to entering into the
proposed transaction with the Private Equity Firms. If you own D&P shares and
would like more information about your rights as a shareholder or additional
information concerning our investigation, please contact Joshua M. Rubin
either by email at info@weisslawllp.com or by telephone at (888) 593-4771.

WeissLaw LLP has litigated hundreds of stockholder class and derivative
actions for violations of corporate and fiduciary duties. We have recovered
over a billion dollars for defrauded institutions and individuals and obtained
important corporate governance in these cases. If you have information or
would like legal advice concerning possible corporate wrongdoing (including
insider trading, waste of corporate assets, accounting fraud, or issuing
materially misleading information), consumer fraud (including false
advertising, defective products, or other deceptive business practices), or
anti-trust violations, please email us at info@weisslawllp.com or fill out the
