Squire Sanders & Demspey rebrands

The law firm formerly known as Squire Sanders & Dempsey has lost the third name from its letterhead. After 111 years under the same banner, the firm has decided to rebrand on the heels of a transatlantic merger with UK-based firm Hammonds and entry into the Australian market. Squire Sanders chair and global CEO James Maiwurm said that the firm "wanted to operate under a single and crisper brand around the world," adding that the shorter name is "also a reflection, frankly, that the integration with our U.K. and Australian combinations has really gone as good or better as we would have anticipated." The 1,300-attorney firm will be known as Squire Sanders in all of its 36 locations in 17 countries.
