Law Firms Robbins, Salomon & Patt and DiMonte & Lizak Merge
JAN 12, 2022 - 5:30 am
Robbins, Salomon & Patt and DiMonte & Lizak merged their Chicago-based law practices to form Robbins DiMonte. The combination expands the firms’ collective capabilities in core practice areas, including business and real estate, finance, litigation and trusts and estates, while bolstering their presence in the Chicagoland and Midwest markets. Led by CEO Andrew M. Sachs and president Riccardo A. DiMonte, the combined firm has 60 lawyers, with 40 staff and paralegals located across two offices in downtown Chicago and Park Ridge, IL.
“Both of our firms have been in existence for over 50 years and enjoy longtime client relationships. We each recognized that by joining forces with a similarly situated firm to deepen our bench strength and heighten service to clients, we could position ourselves for the next 50 years,” Sachs, who was previously RSP’s CEO, said. “Like RSP, D&L has deep roots in Illinois and throughout the Midwest with a collaborative culture that seeks to effectively and creatively solve client needs to achieve positive client outcomes. As we explored this opportunity, the synergies between our firms became obvious. By combining firms, we are leveraging each other’s specialties and consolidating our resources, which will allow us to deliver even greater value to our clients with in-depth insights across multi-disciplinary teams, diverse experiences and integrated solutions.”
“This is a true combination of equals, with attorneys and practice areas that are highly complementary,” DiMonte, who previously served as managing partner of D&L, said. “With our full array of practice offerings, the firm will become a full-service destination of choice for investors, owners and middle-market businesses. Robbins DiMonte is positioned for long-term success and will continue to be a firm well-regarded for personal service, creativity and forward-thinking, solution-minded attorneys.”
“The interests of our clients were central to making the decision to merge,” Sachs and DiMonte said in a joint statement. “Both firms wanted to remain nimble and adaptable to changing client needs while leveraging our comprehensive knowledge and breadth of experience, which we believe power our strong client alliances.”
