Wolf Block’s 67-lawyer Roseland, New Jersey location will try to keep the office intact, as a separate firm or by merging with another firm.
The day after partners at Wolf Block voted to dissolve the 290-lawyer firm, lawyers in the Roseland office met about their future and fielded inquiries from other firms.
Most of the partners were in Brach, Eichler, Rosenberg, Silver, Bernstein, Hammer & Gladstone, which Wolf Block acquired in 2003. If the office becomes a stand-alone firm, there is a good chance it will revert to the Brach Eichler name.
The Roseland office was the most profitable of Wolf Block’s branches in the fiscal year that ended January 31st, and that revenue per lawyer increased from the 2007 fiscal year.
