Kennedys merger with Gates officially a disaster

March 22, 2014 Former Kennedys aviation partner Sean Gates is moving to Hill Dickinson just months after his firm, Gates & Partners, merged with Kennedys last year.

RollonFriday reports from insiders who say that things went awry with the merger very quickly, with five former Gates & Partners lawyers moving to Hill Dickinson since the merger, and Gate himself announcing his retirement from the firm last May.

According to reports, the merger with Kennedys included just a one-year covenant, which means that Gates’ clients can follow him to Hill Dickinson this summer, at no cost, while Kennedys absorbs the massive loss of the merger.
