Two of the Metro East’s top legal firms, which have handled cases worldwide, have announced their merger.
Flint Law Firm, LLC. and Raefan Group, both based in Edwardville, have combined to form Flint Cooper, LLC.
The new firm will be co-led by founding partners Ethan Flint and Jeff Cooper. They are known for their handling of asbestos-related cases and 5th Amendment “takings cases,” which are occurrences of a local or federal government occupying or encroaching upon private land for its own proposed, public use
By joining forces, Flint Cooper immediately scales the reach of how it manages a diverse portfolio of multibillion-dollar cases.
Currently, Flint Cooper is actively working on a caseload worth over $17 billion the majority of which is comprised of post-judgment collections and damages phase litigation.
Flint Cooper has offices in Dallas, Edwardsville and Paducah.
“Our firms have always respected and supported each other when it comes to shared values around client commitment and reputational excellence,” said Flint (right). “Together the growth we have created represents meaningful benefits to our existing roster of clients and our ability to bring our expertise to a broader scope of new clients around the world.”
“This strategic combination achieves a larger geographical footprint, extensive resources, and a broader network,” said Cooper (left). “The deep well of experience, intellectual power, and untouchable track record that our teams bring to the table makes Flint Cooper the best counsel and advocates to have in any claimant’s corner.”
