Attorneys at Texas-based Locke Liddell & Sapp PLLC and Lord Bissell & Brook LLP, a national firm headquartered in Chicago, have voted to approve combining the two firms. The new firm, Locke Lord Bissell & Liddell LLP, will have approximately 700 attorneys with offices in Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, London, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York, Sacramento and Washington, D.C. The combination will go into effect on October 2, 2007.

The new firm will have gross revenues of approximately $400 million, placing it within American Lawyer’s “AmLaw 100” annual rankings of the top U.S. law firms. Locke Liddell & Sapp’s managing partner Jerry Clements will serve as its chair. Lord, Bissell & Brook’s current chair, Thomas Jenkins, and Locke Liddell & Sapp’s Marc Watts will serve as the firm’s co-vice chairs.

Other members of the combined firm’s Executive Committee will be Locke Liddell lawyers Ed DeYoung, Don Glendenning and Bill Swanstrom, as well as Lord Bissell lawyers Tom Cunningham, Nick DiGiovanni and Jackie Klein. Bryan Goolsby, Locke Liddell & Sapp former managing partner, will serve as executive chair and will advise the Executive Committee on financial and strategic matters.

“This merger of equals represents a shared vision by the attorneys of both firms to provide opportunities that ensure the long-term success of our lawyers and our clients,” Ms. Clements said. “It became very clear during our meetings over the past three months that both firms have similar cultures, share the same objectives and philosophies, and want to build on each other’s strengths and experiences. Together, we will immediately realize geographic diversity, establish a larger national footprint and increase our breadth and depth.”

Ms. Clements went on to say, “As Locke Lord Bissell & Liddell, we have a partnership that is diverse, dynamic and positioned to be competitive and successful in the 21st century. Most importantly, we will have the expertise, size and commitment to serve our clients effectively and
efficiently in the years to come.”

Mr. Jenkins added, “Our firms’ practices complement one another. This combination allows us to expand our legal expertise and provide service to clients in additional industries from offices
