New York-headquartered Am Law 100 firm Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel has put down roots in Washington, D.C., through a merger with litigation and appellate boutique Robbins, Russell, Englert, Orseck & Untereiner.

By adding all 24 Robbins Russell litigators to Kramer Levin, the firm believes it instantly has a “strong” D.C. office from which the combined firm can continue to grow its trial and appellate practices.
