After confirming persistent rumors of merger talks with a press release, it was only a matter of time before it became official. D.C.-based Preston Gates Ellis & Rouvelas Meeds finalized its merger with Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham on Dec. 14, but the merger won’t become effective until Jan. 1. Both firms insist it’s a win-win, but the names of Preston Gates Chairman Emanuel Rouvelas and former Rep. Lloyd Meeds (D-Wash.), who passed away in August 2005, got dropped from the combined firm name as it’s known in D.C.: Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Preston Gates Ellis. Preston Gates attorneys will be moving into Kirkpatrick’s 1601 K St. offices with R. Charles Miller, of Kirkpatrick, as administrative partner and Jonathan Blank, of Preston Gates, as deputy administrative partner in Washington.
