Robert P. Bethea, Jr. will serve as the Partner in Charge of the Adams and Reese Columbia office.
added, â€œAs the legal industry changes and the business environment for clients becomes more competitive and complex, we want to continue meeting our clients' expectations.Â We realized that a merger with a larger firm would enable us to provide more resources to meet the higher levels of sophistication that our clients are increasingly requiring.Â Smaller firms have limitations, simply by virtue of their size or footprint.
They (smaller firms) cannot often provide the same highly sophisticated experience in as wide a range of practice areas, and at the same level, as larger firms with deeper talent pools and experience in more focused areas of practice.â€
Partners joining Adams
and Reese include: John F. Beach, Robert P. Bethea, Jr.
