Clark Hill and Strasburger & Price are two large law firms that span across multiple states. Once the merger is complete, their staff will consist of 650 attorneys in 25 different offices. Both stages of the merger should be complete by the second quarter of this year.
Texas seems to be a main focal point of the merger, in which they will reform and target specified industries. Local energy laws, taxes, and healthcare are primary targets of the merged law firm force. Strasburger already has 6 offices in the state and Clark Hill will likely expand their force and expertise to the area.
The leadership of Clark Hill felt that the core values, corporate culture, and business goals were similar to theirs. With this merger, the company will perfectly expand into higher markets and will reach an entirely new customer base. The merger wasn’t the first idea in their minds since their original goal was a strategic partnership. After working out their market goals and legal complications, a merger seemed like the most logical step.
Thorp Reed & Armstrong and Morris Polich & Purdy are other firms that had been absorbed into Clark Hill. Future mergers are entirely likely since both firms have expansion set into their sights.
John Hern Jr. is the CEO of Clark Hill and he will continue as a managing partner for the new combined company. The previous leadership of Strasburger will also lead to executive positions.
