Crowell & Moring, which has set its sights on strategic expansion, is merging with New York-based boutique Kibbe & Orbe to expand offerings to clients in the financial services industry.
As a part of the combination, 24 lawyers from Kibbe & Orbe, previously known as Richards Kibbe & Orbe, will join Crowell in its New York, London, and Washington offices.
Among those making the jump to Crowell are Jennifer Grady, managing partner and chair of the firm’s executive committee, Andrew Martin, managing partner of the London office, as well as three founding partners, Jonathan Kibbe, William Orbe, and Michael D. Mann. The deal is expected to close in April.
