April 2, 2015 – In a move to strengthen its presence in a key strategic market, Locke Lord LLP announced today that it is now operating from one Chicago
location, bringing together lawyers and staff from legacy Locke Lord and legacy Edwards Wildman Palmer less than three months after the merger of the two law firms.
The move took place over the weekend bringing more than 250 lawyers and staff together in one office at 111 South Wacker Drive. The Locke Lord Chicago lawyers provide a comprehensive range of legal services in areas of insurance and reinsurance, business litigation, corporate, private equity, mergers and acquisitions, finance and securities, consumer finance, class actions, intellectual property and technology, labor and employment and real estate.
“Physically combining our two Chicago offices was a top priority from day one of our merger,” said the Firm’s Chicago Office Managing Partner Jennifer Kenedy
. “Having all Chicago attorneys and staff under one roof is critical to integration and will enable us to more quickly maximize the practice synergies our combination creates, both here in Chicago and firmwide.”
