Wade Cooper Quoted in Law360 on Texas Law Firm Mergers

Jackson Walker firmwide managing partner Wade Cooper was quoted in a June 24, 2013, article in Law360 about Texas law firms that have opted to buck the consolidation trend sweeping U.S. law firms.

The article, "Texas Firms Stand Their Ground Amid Merger Mania," looks at how Texas law firms are responding to the recent upturn in merger offers from national and international firms eager to break into the Texas market. In particular, it asked law firm leaders to share their strategies for maintaining their identity while growing to accommodate their clients' needs.

Mr. Cooper said that Jackson Walker's strategic decision to keep its offices in Texas has proved an advantage to the firm, allowing Jackson Walker to protect the firm's unique culture. At the same time' Jackson Walker's strong Texas base enables the firm to provide clients with a full range of services while keeping overhead costs low.

"We're able to help them with contacts or strategic alliances outside the state without the additional overhead or cultural burdens," Mr. Cooper said.
