The newly added partners have extensive experience in representing complex commercial litigation and class action defense cases. HRO will benefit from Musgrave & Theis' reputation of being a leading trial firm excelling in the fields of antitrust, trade secrets, copyright, telecommunications, employment, professional malpractice, shareholder disputes, and contract matters.

Founded way back in 1898, Holme Roberts & Owen is a 215 lawyer firm with fully integrated offices in Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, London, and Munich.

NYC witnessing a surge in law firm mergers
An increasing number of law firms are looking to enhance their presence in New York City. Situated in Manhattan, Crowell & Moring's new office was launched in September, 2006 and recently witnessed an influx of 15 new associates. The law firm lured 23 lawyers from competing firms King Pagano Harrison and Morgan & Finnegan, boosting its attorney strength to 350 across its five offices.

The merger between San Francisco-based Thelen Reid & Priest and Manhattan's Brown Raysman Millstein Felder & Steiner created a team of 255 attorneys based in New York City out of a total firm strength of 615 lawyers. This was followed by news of the formation of new firm Day Pitney after the merger of New Jersey-based Pitney Hardin with Boston-based Day, Berry & Howard. Recently, Philadelphia-based DrinkerBiddle & Reath and Chicago-based Gardner Carton & Douglas also combined operations, forming a 650-lawyer firm with eight attorneys based in New York City. As more and more mid-sized law firms are consolidating into larger firms to increase their regional presence, New York City is witnessing a trend that doesn't look like it's going to end any time soon.

Success Stories

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
