Peck Shaffer & Williams Merges with Dinsmore & Shohl



Peck Shaffer & Williams LLP has become a part of Charleston based Dinsmore & Shohl effective this March. The website of Dinsmore & Shohl announced the news "Top Bond Counsel firm joins forces with Dinsmore," with the subheading - Peck Shaffer & Williams is now a division of Dinsmore and Shohl LLP."

Dinsmore & Shohl's release went on to say - We've expanded westward with new offices in Chicago and Denver, combining 35 attorneys with our existing commercial finance and bond counsel groups. Peck Shaffer clients will now benefit from a host of new legal service offerings provided by more than 500 attorneys.

Both law firms are well-known for quality work and are more than a century old. Peck Shaffer was founded in Cincinnati in 1889 and is one of the oldest bond counsel firms in the nation. From 1977-2005, the law firm sustained a phase of growth opening offices in Columbus, Ohio, Covington, Kentucky, Chicago, Illinois and Denver, Colorado. It serves clients in nearly all 50 states.

Peck Shaffer had consistently ranked as one of the top bond counsel firms in the country. For 2013, The Bond Buyer ranked the firm 15th in the nation among underwriter's counsel and 16th in the nation among bond counsel. Peck Shaffer attorneys have won many awards and accolades from the industry and many of them are also American College of Bond Counsel Fellows.

While Dinsmore & Shohl has a history of 106 years, Peck Shaffer has been in the legal world for more than 120 years and had developed into one of the largest and most respected public finance practices in the country. To absorb Peck Shaffer, Dinsmore created a new Finance Department and restructured several practice groups. Dinsmore gained from Peck Shaffer 23 partners, eight associates, four Of Counsel attorneys and 27 professional staff.

Speaking on the merger, George H. Vincent, Dinsmore's Managing Partner and Chairman said, "Peck Shaffer is known nationally for the quality and strength of its public finance practice. Combining its 35 attorneys with our top commercial finance and bond counsel groups means we are well positioned in the finance arena. We are very pleased to add these exceptional attorneys to the firm. This expansion also aligns with our strategic goals of keeping pace with our clients' sophisticated public financing needs."
