Now it’s official:
Locke Lord Bissell & Liddell… announces that more than 30 lawyers previously with New York-based Morgan & Finnegan are joining Locke Lord. Morgan & Finnegan was one of the oldest and most well regarded Intellectual Property law firms in the country. The attorneys include 13 Partners and the previous members of Morgan & Finnegan’s Executive Committee.
This move more than doubles the size of Locke Lord’s New York office to about 50 attorneys and leads to Locke Lord opening a San Francisco office – the Firm’s 13th office and its third in California (Los Angeles, Sacramento and now San Francisco). Morgan & Finnegan was in existence more than 115 years…
ATL points out the oddness of those “was-es.” There has been no official announcement that Morgan & Finnegan is dissolving.
