Thompson Coburn acquires LA firm
Thompson Coburn is set to launch an office in L.A., with the acquisition of 10-attorney Los Angeles law firm [Freedman Weisz. The merger is set for completion in early October, adding one more base to Thompson Coburn’s current offerings in St. Louis, Chicago, southern Illinois and Washington, D.C.
Thompson Coburn chairman Tom Minogue pointed out that the firm was attracted to Freedman Weisz because: "They’ve built a fine practice that aligns perfectly with a number of our key areas of focus: corporate transactions, tax and estate planning, litigation, real estate, intellectual property and private client services.”
He added: "We couldn’t be happier about following so many of our clients to California and teaming up with such a splendid group of lawyers, and plan expeditiously to more than double the size of the office.”
