Polsinelli Shughart PC announced Thursday that it’s dropping the second half of its name and, henceforth, will be known as Polsinelli PC.
The move by the Kansas City-based firm erases the last public remnants of Shughart Thomson & Kilroy PC, which combined with Polsinelli Shalton Flanigan Suelthaus PC in 2009 to form Polsinelli Shughart. Today, the firm has more than 630 attorneys in 16 cities.
“While our legacy firms and our history provide our foundation, we have become more than the sum of our parts. Most importantly, we are all one firm today, and our clients already refer to us as Polsinelli,” Russ Welsh, the firm’s chairman, said in a statement. “The owners agreed using one name reflects we are one firm from coast to coast.”
