Lane Powell is pleased to announce that 17 lawyers from Roberts Kaplan joined the Firm January 1, 2011.  “Both Firms share similar cultures and commitment to client service, with each Firm bringing highly specialized expertise to the table.  This combination provides a superior offering to existing and new clients of the Firm,” said Lewis M. Horowitz, President of Lane Powell.  Ken Roberts from Roberts Kaplan adds that “both Firms also share strong Pacific Northwest roots and similar philosophies on the importance of integrity and reputation in the practice of law; I am confident that historic clients of both Firms will be well served through this combination.”  Roberts also said, “many of our clients have the need for specialized expertise in areas we did not provide.  With Lane Powell, we can now fully serve all the various needs of our clients.”

Roberts Kaplan’s lawyers’ experience and expertise expands Lane Powell’s existing Practice and Industry Groups, especially in the areas of aviation, banking, commercial litigation, cooperatives, corporate finance, healthcare, M&A, securities and specialized real estate.  Their combined experience in serving the legal needs of banks solidifies Lane Powell’s position as the leading provider in the Pacific Northwest for the financial services industry.
