Gambrell & Stolz and Baker Donelson to merge operations

It's a season of active mergers and acquisitions. Towing the line, two more law firms with strong political ties have resolved to merge operations. Atlanta-based Gambrell & Stolz is joining forces with Memphis-based law firm of Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz.

Established in 1963, Gambrell & Stolz's 36 attorneys will work together with Baker Donelson's 500 attorneys and public policy advisers. The former will also benefit from Baker Donelson's wider reach in the legal market and its 14 worldwide offices. Linda Klein, managing partner of Gambrell & Stolz, who will serve as a co-managing shareholder of Baker Donelson's Atlanta office, describes the union as a "strong cultural fit." Baker Donelson's 14 attorneys in Atlanta will relocate to Gambrell & Stolz offices and practice in intellectual property and patent law in the new firm under the name of Baker Donelson.

Gambrell & Stolz serves clients in a variety of practice areas including commercial litigation, business and corporate finance, real estate, healthcare, and eminent domain.
