Two central Indiana law firms have merged in order to provide their clients with all their legal needs in one firm.

Indianapolis law firm Coleman Stevenson and The Montel Law Firm of Carmel officially became Coleman Stevenson & Montel today. The merger, which has been in talks for three months, came out of need, said Gerald Coleman, partner at Coleman Stevenson & Montel.

The Montel Law Firm often represents clients in business and transaction work, but doesn't do much in terms of litigation, even though they receive a lot of requests for litigation work. Coleman Stevenson focuses more on litigation than on business transactions, but would like to have more transaction work, so the partnership made perfect sense, Coleman said.

The new firm will have seven attorneys - five from Coleman Stevenson and two from The Montel Law Firm.

Although the merger takes effect today, the firm won't officially open its doors on its new Indianapolis office until Oct 1. The newly created firm is in the process of acquiring a building on the north side of Indianapolis and there will need to be some renovations done before the firm can move in. The two firms are operating in their current locations until the move.

Coleman Stevenson & Montel will be a certified Minority Business Enterprise.
