Dinsmore & Shohl LLP expanded its national footprint through a merger with Peck Shaffer & Williams LLP.

Effective March 1, Peck Shaffer became a division of Dinsmore & Shohl.

In its more than 120-year history, Peck Shaffer developed its public finance practice into one of the largest and most respected in the country. With the merger, Dinsmore, now in its 106th year, will gain significant bond counsel strength. To support this growth, the firm will create a Finance Department and restructure several practice groups.

"The timing is right from our standpoint," said George H. Vincent, Dinsmore's managing partner and chairman. "Peck Shaffer is known nationally for the quality and strength of its public finance practice. Combining its 35 attorneys with our top commercial finance and bond counsel groups means we are well positioned in the finance arena. We are very pleased to add these exceptional attorneys to the firm." 

Peck Shaffer was founded in Cincinnati in 1889 and is one of the oldest bond counsel firms in the nation. From 1977-2005, Peck Shaffer expanded as its work grew, opening offices in Columbus, Ohio, Covington, Ky., Chicago, Ill. and Denver, Colo. Peck Shaffer serves clients in nearly all 50 states.

The merger brings 23 partners, eight associates, four of counsel attorneys and 27 professional staff into the Dinsmore fold.

"We are excited about the opportunity to join Dinsmore and to expand our public finance service offering," said Dirk M. Bedarff, Peck Shaffer's managing partner. "It also enables us to leverage Dinsmore's Corporate, Litigation, Labor & Employment and Intellectual Property groups to fully support our clients' needs."

Peck Shaffer consistently ranks as one of the top bond counsel firms in the country.
