One of the larger law firms in Rochester, N.Y., region is dissolving as eight attorneys join one the area's biggest law firms.
Three of the lawyers from Fix, Spindelman, Brovitz & Goldman are joining Woods Oviatt Gilman as partners, the Rochester Business Journal reports.
Paralegals and support staff are also included in the move to Woods Oviatt, a law firm press release says.
“The group joining us from Fix Spindelman brings added depth, sophistication and support to our existing capabilities in the areas of corporate, real estate and other business transactions, as well as real estate development and land use,” managing partner James McElheny said in the release.
A year ago, Fix, Spindelman had over 15 lawyers on its attorney roster, according to the Rochester business publication. At last report, Woods Oviatt had over 75 lawyers.
