Freeborn & Peters LLP and Brenner, Evans & Millman P.C. announce their combination, which is driven by client interests. As of May 1, 2016, the firm will further enhance client service capabilities through a combination of the two highly respected firms. The expanded firm will be called Freeborn & Peters LLP and will have offices in Chicago, Illinois, Springfield, Illinois and Richmond, Virginia. The union was encouraged by a long-term client of both firms and executes on the strategic growth plan of Freeborn & Peters LLP. “We believe the joining of these highly regarded firms creates an even better future for the service of our clients. The decision reflects a focused strategy by Freeborn & Peters. We pick our spots deliberately, which is why the firm remains independent and successful,” said Michael Kelly, Co-Managing Partner, Freeborn & Peters LLP. “The most successful law firm combinations are those that meet client needs, like this one between Freeborn & Peters and Brenner, Evans & Millman. There are other possible reasons, but this is the best one,” said John Smock of Smock Law Firm Consultants, a strategic consultant to many firms in the industry, including Freeborn & Peters.
