Another US Firm Goes The Way of The Dinosaurs is reporting that Philadelphia based firm Wolf Block decided to dissolve yesterday after a partners meeting.. write:

Wolf Block partners met at 1p.m. Monday to discuss the fate of the firm and have issued a statement that they voted to commence an "orderly unwinding of the firm’s business."

"Wolf Block will remain in the practice of law for several months to protect the interests of its clients, employees and creditors," the firm said in a statement. "The decision to unwind was reached in view of a confluence of unfavorable factors: the economic recession, especially in the firm’s core real estate practice; the constriction of credit occasioned by the ongoing banking crisis; and the intended and anticipated departure of significant partners and practices."
