Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough is merging with a 19-lawyer intellectual property firm in Boston.
The firm’s merger with Lahive & Cockfield takes place on Nov. 1, according to the State and a Nelson Mullins press release. The move will double the size of Nelson Mullins’ Boston office and will increase the size of its IP team to more than 70 lawyers and IP specialists.
Administrative partner James Gray told the State that IP is a “core practice of the future.”
The firm will retain the name Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough after the merger. It has offices in Atlanta, Boston, Tallahassee, West Virginia, Washington, D.C., and throughout the Carolinas.
