R.I. law firm, one of nation's oldest, to close
Law firm Tillinghast Licht, with roots dating to 1818, announced today that it will wind down business in the next few months, with six key lawyers joining Adler Pollock & Sheehan on May 19.
"The decision to close the firm stems in large part from the fact that in recent years the firm has become somewhat smaller, and the partners believe its current size could impact its ability to remain a full-service law firm," the firm said in a statement today.
The Tillinghast Licht lawyers joining Adler Pollock & Sheehan include former Lt. Gov. Richard A. Licht and former House Speaker Joseph DeAngelis, Adler Pollock & Sheehan said in a statement.
Other Tillinghast Licht lawyers will join other firms or set up their own offices to concentrate on their specialties, the Tillinghast Licht statement said.
