International law firm Clark Hill PLC announced April 30 it combined with Boulder-based LaszloLaw, a corporate and commercial transactional and litigation firm with a focus on the food, beverage and hospitality industries.

“Ted and Mike are outstanding lawyers and we’re really pleased to welcome them and their clients to Clark Hill,” said Clark Hill CEO John Hensien in a press release. “Our growth strategy for the past several years has been to add depth to existing practice groups and to expand our geographic footprint in regions where we already have a presence. Combining with LaszloLaw not only enables us to execute on that strategy, but we also get terrific new team members whose practices and clients dovetail nicely with our existing operations.”

LaszloLaw regularly works with companies in the hospitality and beverage industries, including restaurants, wineries, distilleries, breweries, importers, distributors and retailers. 

“Our clients are the top priority for us,” said Ted Laszlo in a press release.

He represents businesses in complex transactional and merger and acquisition engagements. “Over the years since founding LaszloLaw, our clients’ businesses have grown, and so have their legal needs. We’re thrilled that by joining Clark Hill we can offer our clients access to a full-service international firm that boasts a diverse group of top practitioners across a range of disciplines. Going forward, we’ll be able to meet all of our clients’ legal needs around the country – and in one stop — from corporate to litigation, tax advisement to real estate. We’re excited.”

“We weren’t actively looking to partner with a larger firm but we regularly work with Clark Hill attorneys and it became clear that the firm and its values were in sync with ours, and we realized what a combination could mean for our clients. Clark Hill brings the same level of respect, professional integrity and commitment to quality that we have always delivered. We expect this combination to be a welcome one for our clients.”
