A 20-lawyer firm in Evansville announced its merger with one of the nation’s 250 largest law firms effective July 1.

Rudolph, Fine, Porter and Johnson LLP will merge with Jackson Kelly PLLC, the companies announced in a statement.

“With complementary skill sets and collective knowledge, the joining of the two firms will enable us to take our clients to the next level with a broader range of resources and services,” Rudolph Fine managing partner Marc D. Fine said.

Chad J. Sullivan, member in Jackson Kelly's Evansville office, said the merger is in response to the continued prosperity of the region and its local businesses.  

“We are honored to add the attorneys of Rudolph, Fine, Porter and Johnson to the firm and are confident that this expansion will improve our ability to help clients take advantage of the increased opportunity in the Tri-State area. As Evansville prepares for growth, so do we,” said Sullivan.

Jackson Kelly, which was founded in 1822 and traces its roots to Charleston, W.Va., opened its 11th office in Evansville with three attorneys in 2011 to serve its growing energy practice and continues to support the energy and manufacturing industries in the area. Its Evansville office will move to Rudolph Fine Porter and Johnson’s downtown office site at 221 NW Fifth St.

Rudolph Fine was founded in 1987 and now has more than 50 attorneys, paraprofessionals and administrators in offices in Evansville and Crawfordsville. The firm’s practice areas include litigation, mediation, estate planning and administration, corporate, health care, banking, employment and real estate law.

  2. Indianapolis Bar Association President John Trimble and I are on the same page, but it is a very large page with plenty of room for others to join us. As my final Res Gestae article will express in more detail in a few days, the Great Recession hastened a fundamental and permanent sea change for the global legal service profession. Every state bar is facing the same existential questions that thrust the medical profession into national healthcare reform debates. The bench, bar, and law schools must comprehensively reconsider how we define the practice of law and what it means to access justice. If the three principals of the legal service profession do not recast the vision of their roles and responsibilities soon, the marketplace will dictate those roles and responsibilities without regard for the public interests that the legal profession professes to serve.

  3. I have met some highly placed bureaucrats who vehemently disagree, Mr. Smith. This is not your father's time in America. Some ideas are just too politically incorrect too allow spoken, says those who watch over us for the good of their concept of order.

  4. Lets talk about this without forgetting that Lawyers, too, have FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND ASSOCIATION

  5. Baer filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals Seventh Circuit on April 30 2015. When will this be decided? How many more appeals does this guy have? Unbelievable this is dragging on like this.
