Brown & Thelen Reid agrees to tie the knot


On December 1, 2006, construction, energy, and project finance pundits Thelen Reid & Priest will join forces with Brown Raysman Millstein Felder & Steiner, experts in technology, and real estate finance practices. The move will create a combined team of more than 615 lawyers on board working under the banner of Thelen Reid Brown Raysman & Steiner LLP.

The merger will help clients of both the firms gain access to a broad array of specialized services in practice areas like construction, energy, litigation, technology, outsourcing, intellectual property, e-commerce, media, and communications. The firm will have seven offices in major markets of the US and a new office in Shanghai. Altogether, 242 attorneys in California and 371 on the East Coast will man offices for the firm.

Stephen V. O'Neal and Julian S. Millstein will act as Co-Chairs of the new firm, and Thomas E. Hill will serve as the Managing Partner of Operations. Both firms hope the merger is the beginning of further expansion and a greater geographical reach.

It's destination Boston for U.S. law firms
It's destination Boston for a few prominent U.S. Law firms of late. After Greenberg Traurig, DLA Piper and Seyfarth Shaw made the move, Pepper Hamilton is putting the final touches on plans for its own Boston office. Though the new office will have around 15 attorneys, the firm plans to expand capacity to house at least 50 in the near future. Additionally, the firm has hired Leonard Schneidman as Of Counsel. Schneidman, former partner in tax group in Foley Hoag, is an expert in international tax planning and corporate transactions. At present, assisting Schneidman will be four or five attorneys from the firm's Philadelphia office who will basically concentrate on corporate, tax, private equity, and life sciences; later, they will expand on to biotechnology, intellectual property, and white-collar litigation work.

Personal injury experts Eisenberg Rothweiler of erstwhile Eisenberg, Rothweiler, Winkler, Eisenberg, & Jeck has opened up an office in Boston with the addition of prominent attorney Alex MacDonald. MacDonald earlier served Robinson & Cole leading the firm's mass torts practice group. With his joining, Philadelphia-based Eisenberg Rothweiler will be take up a new moniker MacDonald, Rothweiler, & Eisenberg for its Boston office. The move to include MacDonald to the firm stems from its desire to move to the national arena from a more regional identity based in its mass torts practice. Along with MacDonald, one associate and a few cases also join the new firm. Eisenberg Rothweiler mainstay is mainly on medical malpractice, products liability, crashworthiness, and mass torts.

In yet another move to Boston, McCarter & English merged with Gadsby Hannah, a Boston-based law firm, while Wolf Block Schorr & Solis-Cohen had embarked on the east coast expansion last year, under the captainship of Robert Crowe.
