The law firms of Wright Lindsey Jennings (WLJ) and Dover Dixon Horne PLLC (DDH) announced Tuesday (Dec. 21) they will form a “strategic partnership” effective Jan. 1, 2022, that will unite the two firms under the WLJ umbrella.
The newly combined firm will kick off 2022 with 85 attorneys.
“With this partnership, our goal is to be the most comprehensive and resourceful team for clients throughout Arkansas and the region,” said Steve Lancaster, WLJ’s managing partner. “There is a shared set of values that connects us already – to provide our clients with ethical, sound and proactive legal guidance; to support our communities through giving and service; and to continue to drive progress in the legal industry through innovation and a collaborative spirit.”
“We have a proud history at Dover Dixon Horne dating back to 1925,” said Cal McCastlain, Little Rock-based DDH’s managing member. “That legacy has prepared us for this moment. The focus now is on the future. Uniting the strengths and efforts of DDH and WLJ under one banner allows us to provide the highest quality, value and breadth of service to our clients.”
Both firms have a deep bench of attorneys who have represented privately-held and publicly-traded companies.
Combined, the WLJ firm will offer additional business and corporate services in the fields of agriculture and farming, construction and infrastructure, insurance and real estate, tax, utilities and telecommunications, family and domestic law, and environmental rules and regulations.
WLJ was founded 120 years ago. It has offices in Little Rock and Rogers.
