A press release from Zelle stated that the five attorneys will “expand its antitrust and financial services litigation capabilities” in its newly opened Washington, D.C., branch. Within the last year, the firm has opened new offices in New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. They have also launched Zelle International in London.

In December, JD Journal reported that Dickstein Shapiro strongly considered a merger. In 2012, they had almost 350 lawyers but by December 2015 that number was down to 160.



Bloomberg reports that the shrinkage of the firm is due to numerous factors, which include a mass partner exodus and a change in intellectual property law.
