Unquestionably the newest firm on the block, Cleveland-based Tucker, Ellis & West opened its doors on July 16, 2003 with 90 attorneys. While it is remarkable that a new firm could open with such a large stable of attorneys, it is not all that surprising to anyone following the latest goings on in the Cleveland legal market. Arter & Hadden, one of the largest firms based in the Cleveland area with a national presence, has dissolved, effective the day before Tucker, Ellis opened. All 90 of Tucker, Ellis's attorneys, in addition to the legal staff they employ, are coming directly from Arter & Hadden's ranks, including the name partners.
