McGuireWoods is merging with Helms Mulliss & Wicker to form a law firm with about 900 lawyers in 17 offices. Helms Mulliss, with 145 attorneys, is known for its finance and litigation practices, and has offices in three North Carolina locations: Charlotte, Raleigh and Wilmington. Scott Vaughn, practice leader for Helms Mulliss’ finance group, will serve as managing partner of the Charlotte office, which will have 160 lawyers. The firms expect to complete the merger on March 31 and will operate under the McGuireWoods name. Helms Mulliss was established in Charlotte in 1922. It has 25 attorneys in Raleigh and Wilmington. McGuireWoods opened a Charlotte office in 1998 after it merged with Blakeney & Alexander. McGuireWoods ranked as the 45th largest U.S. law firm in The National Law Journal‘s annual survey. The merger will put the firm closer to the top 30 largest firms by number of attorneys.
