Blank Rome to launch in San Fransisco
Blank Rome is set to launch in San Francisco, and has revealed plans to expand to New York and Los Angeles.
The firm has hired 21 lawyers, including five partners, from Finestone & Richter and Margolis & Tisman, and these new recruits will be spread across the three offices, with 15 to join the Los Angeles base, while three join the New York office and three will join the office in San Francisco.
Alan Hoffman, the chairman and managing partner for the firm, said that the acquisitions include all of the lawyers at both firms except for one or two lawyers. The lawyers bring experience in labor and employment, commercial litigation, corporate mergers and acquisitions, real estate, banking and trusts and estates.
