The estate planning law firm TuckerAllen has spun off from Lewis Rice and merged with elder care law firm Cordell Planning Partners, effective Jan. 1.
The combined firm will operate under the TuckerAllen brand. Lewis Rice, which formed TuckerAllen as a subsidiary in 2016, will not be associated with the business going forward, the firm said in a news release.
“The new TuckerAllen law firm brings together two highly regarded and well-known law practices under one name to offer a portfolio of legal solutions to existing and future clients,” said Thomas Erb, the chairman of Lewis Rice.
Lewis Rice didn’t disclose the terms of the spinoff and merger transactions.
Joseph E. Cordell, the founder of Cordell Planning Partners, said in the release that the merger was “a natural fit.”
“TuckerAllen is a recognized leader in estate planning, and when combined with Cordell Planning Partners’ elder law services, the new TuckerAllen law firm will be able to serve more clients and their families as a trusted partner and source of protection through every critical stage of their lives,” he said.
TuckerAllen now has Missouri offices in Kirkwood, Independence, Chesterfield and St. Charles, as well as locations in Edwardsville, Illinois, and Overland Park, Kansas. TuckerAllen’s existing office locations in Edwardsville and O’Fallon, Missouri closed as of Jan. 1.
