A Philadelphia Business Journal article reports that out of the five new law firm mergers for the third quarter in the United States, four were at least somewhat initiated to expand or fortify the geographic presence of the acquiring firm. Moreover, three of these mergers involved Philadelphia law firms who added on attorneys from smaller firms outside the area. In comparison to the 45 law firm mergers from 2009 to the third quarter, there have been 24 arrangements announced for 2010.
In reviewing the law firms who have participated in mergers, the article addresses the merger of Arizona-based Coben & Associates with the personal injury plaintiffs firm of Anapol Weiss Weiss Cohan Feldman & Smalley, which is comprised of a team of 25 attorneys. Larry Coben will join the firm as a partner and is well-known for successfully handling brain and spinal cord injury cases in relation to defective products. While Mr. Coben relocates to Philadelphia, two associates from his previous firm will practice out of Anapol Weiss’s new Scottsdale, AZ location.
Anapol Weiss welcomes the opportunity and privilege to work with Mr. Coben as the firm continues to provide those injured by another’s negligence the legal counsel and representation that they need.
