BALA CYNWYD, Pa., Jan. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Law office of Brodsky & Smith,
LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of
Directors of Duff & Phelps Corporation ("Duff & Phelps" or the "Company")
(NYSE: DUF) relating to the proposed acquisition by a consortium including The
Carlyle Group, Stone Point Capital LLC, Pictet & Cie and Edmond de Rothschild
Group.

Under the terms of the transaction, Duff & Phelps shareholders will receive
only $15.55 in cash for each Duff & Phelps stock they own. The investigation
concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law
by the Board of Directors of Duff & Phelps for not acting in the Company's
shareholders' best interests in connection with the sale process. The
transaction may undervalue the Company and will result in loss for many long
term Duff & Phelps shareholders. For example Duff & Phelps stock traded at
$16.20 as recently as April 25, 2012 and $17.64 on February 1, 2011. In
addition, the price being offered is below an analyst price target for Duff &
Phelps stock.

ramifications of the proposed transaction, or have any questions, you may
