Locke Lord and KWCG have formed a teaming relationship to benefit our mutual and prospective clients. The success of this arrangement is expected to be extremely significant. This arrangement allows a larger, established firm to share its expertise and lends its resources to help grow a smaller, younger firm. Absent a partnered approach like this, progress toward the equitable distribution of professional work is quite difficult. Newer, smaller firms are told they need more experience and manpower to fully participate in work of this type. Yet, at the same time, they cannot gain that experience or responsibly hire the necessary manpower without having the work – it’s circular and self-fulfilling. Equally as important, this arrangement expands the expertise and capabilities of the more established firm by allowing it to benefit from the expertise, experience, and relationships developed by the younger firm. It also provides members of the larger firm with exposure to the economies of scale employed by smaller firms as well as the policies that draw minority members to these boutique firms. Thus, in addition to providing clients skilled expertise and attentive outside legal support, your employment allows our two firms to enhance our respective strengths, and then direct those strengths to address your legal needs.
