Thompson Coburn LLP, a national law firm with six offices across the country, has announced its combination with New York-based Hahn & Hessen LLP, a 44-attorney firm with nearly a century of experience representing financial institutions and other financial market participants in commercial finance, bankruptcy, workouts, and complex litigation.
The combination, effective July 1, 2021, will create a combined firm with more than 400 attorneys across seven offices: Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, St. Louis, Washington, D.C., and Southern Illinois.
“Thompson Coburn is all about providing exceptional legal services and value to our clients. Now we can strengthen those offerings with dedicated attorneys in New York, the financial capital of the world,” said Thompson Coburn Chair Roman Wuller. “Our combination with one of the premier boutique law firms in their space will provide innumerable benefits to our existing client base, as well as prepare us to serve new financial market participants and business entities across the country.”
Thompson Coburn is a full-service, Am Law 150 law firm with more than 50 practice areas. It represents clients of all sizes, including major companies and financial institutions like U.S. Bank, Citibank, Bayer, and Kawasaki. Hahn & Hessen represents leading market participants in a variety of financial matters, including bankruptcies and restructurings, commercial finance and complex litigation.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for us to combine our deep bankruptcy and financial experience in the New York market with Thompson Coburn’s national presence and resources,” said Mark Indelicato, Managing Partner at Hahn & Hessen. “When you add in our shared values around professional development, civic and charitable efforts, and a diverse and inclusive culture, it’s a perfect fit.”
As part of their growth strategy, the combined Thompson Coburn will continue to focus on providing a strong, successful platform where entrepreneurial attorneys can grow their practices, pursue innovative client offerings, and collaborate with engaged colleagues across the country.
