Edwards & Angell, one of New England’s largest law firms, announced Wednesday that it will be merging with Boston-based intellectual property firm Dike, Bronstein, Roberts and Cushman. The merger, effective July 1, adds Dike, Bronstein’s extensive expertise in patent and intellectual property law to Edwards & Angell’s nationally recognized venture capital practice. “Intellectual property and venture capital are intimately intertwined and probably the most successful route to creating wealth in the current U.S. economy,” said Stephen O. Meredith, a partner in the Boston office of Edwards & Angell. “For our firm to do its part in driving wealth creation for our clients, we really need to deliver in both of these areas.” The merger will also have the effect of making Edwards & Angell’s Boston office its largest with 75 lawyers. The firm also has offices in Connecticut, New York, Florida, Rhode Island and New Jersey. Dike, Bronstein is one of the nation’s oldest law firms, dating back to the late 1860s. Specializing in intellectual property from its inception, the firm has secured patents for such well-known products as the anti-AIDS drug AZT and the board game Monopoly. “We’re excited about the combined capabilities of Edwards & Angell’s renowned litigation, financial and corporate counsel with our intellectual property professionals,” said Dike, Bronstein managing partner Dave Conlin. “This represents a ‘dream team’ of legal services for start-ups and major corporate clients interested in moving safely and quickly through our increasingly technology-based economy.” The post-merger firm will retain the name of Edwards & Angell. The Dike, Bronstein, Roberts and Cushman name will be featured prominently on the firm’s letterhead, however, as they will know be known as Edward & Angell’s intellectual property group.
