Venerable Toledo-based law firm Eastman & Smith Ltd. has entered into what it’s calling “a strategic alliance” with a Michigan law firm, Kilpatrick & Associates.
“This alliance will provide a broader array of services for our clients by utilizing the depth and experience of both firms ... when needed,” said David W. Nunn, chairman of Eastman & Smith’s executive committee. “Together, our combined practices will offer an expanded breadth of skills and the benefit of our cumulative experience while still providing personalized service.”
Both firms will maintain their own offices.
Eastman & Smith was founded in 1844 and has more than 70 attorneys in Toledo, Columbus, Findlay, and Novi, Mich.
