Locke Lord LLP Combines Chicago Locations; Strengthens Firm’s Operations in Strategic Market

April 2, 2015
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.”  ‎
