The Little Rock law firm of Perkins Peiserich Greathouse Morgan Rankin (PPGMR) will open an El Dorado office by affiliating with Brian H. Ratcliff of Shackleford, Phillips & Ratcliff law firm.
Shackleford, Phillips & Ratcliff was founded in 1927 by John M. Shackleford.
“We are excited about the skill Brian and his team offer our clients,” said Julie D. Greathouse, PPGMR’s managing member. “Their reputation in providing civil litigation defense has already been a great complement to our existing practice, while our capabilities add strength to their current client services.”
Ratcliff will serve as managing member of the El Dorado office. He earned his law degree from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law in 1988. He has been with the Shackleford firm for more than 24 years.
A native of El Dorado, Chase Carmichael will be an associate in the new office. He is a 2008 graduate of the University of Arkansas School of Law.
“It is a privilege to join such a respected firm,” said Ratcliff. “We look forward to continuing to represent our current clients as well as PPGMR clients.”
