Yopp & Sweeney and Dinsmore & Shohl sent out a press release in which they confirmed their plans to merge.
As NashvillePost.com reported last week, Yopp & Sweeney will become the Nashville office of D&S, a Cincinnati-based firm with many practice areas, but a strong reputation in litigation.
Matt Sweeney, a partner at Yopp & Sweeney, said the merger made sense on several levels.
"When we were going through our strategic plan, we looked at the future and decided that in order to best represent our clients, we needed to be bigger and have more resources," he said. "The firms that do the type of work that we do are moving to the regional model."
The merger will be effective September 1.
Yopp & Sweeney has 24 attorneys. As NashvillePost.com also reported last week, seven of those attorneys - including Michael Yopp - are joining Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis rather than join D&S.
