We are pleased to announce that as of June 19, 2017, Schick & Copeland LLP has become Copeland & Rice LLP. Our new name reflects the departure of our colleague and friend Robert Schick, who rejoined Vinson & Elkins LLP, where we all began our careers.
As you know, our firm was founded on the belief that pure-play litigation boutiques are best positioned to handle sophisticated disputes that are likely to go to trial. We remain committed to that approach and to the value proposition clients receive from our unique combination of extensive trial experience and low overhead. Having practiced together for over a decade, our team has cultivated a strong culture of collegiality, collaboration, and excellence. Focused on these shared values, we work together to provide excellent legal counsel that supports our clients’ business and legal goals.
We’re also excited to announce the addition of our newest partner, Gwen Samora, our former colleague at Vinson & Elkins LLP. A leader in the appellate and commercial litigation world, Gwen’s expansive background is matched by her entrepreneurial spirit and stellar reputation. We look forward to introducing her to each of you.
Along with our new name and partner, we have also refreshed our logo and website, which offers details on the recent successes we’ve achieved for plaintiffs and defendants, inside and outside the courtroom. We look forward to this new era in the firm’s development – please stay tuned for updates on our continued growth.
Thank you for the privilege of being your trial attorneys and friends. Please let us know how we can serve you.
