Download PDF

Fix, Spindelman, Brovitz & Goldman P.C. have combined with Woods Oviatt. According to the Rochester Business Journal, Woods Oviatt is the region’s fourth largest law firm, with 76 attorneys. It has been ranked as the 17th largest firm in the region, as published by the 2012 Law Firm List of the Rochester Business Journal.

This merger will combine the two firms. It will mix their expertise and it will ultimately diversify them. This diversity of experience and tenure will create more value for their clients. But it may also make for a stronger company as a whole. In this particular case, Fix, Spindelman, Brovitz & Goldman P.C. has dissolved. But its parts have survived as it now gets absorbed into Woods Oviatt. The two work cultures and personality mixes will ultimately become one large entity. The new Woods Oviatt may assume the rights, privileges, and liabilities of the merged corporation. This is a massive move that will include paralegals and back office support staff. In this way, the entire bodies of the firms are coming together.
