Robert J. Jackson & Associates, Inc., a California-based mortgage banking law firm, has merged with The Wolf Firm, a California law corporation, according to an internal memo obtained by HousingWire.
The merger of well-known industry law firms was complete effective Sept. 2, 2014, and brings Jackson & Associates' California law practice and national practice to The Wolf Firm. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
The combined firm will operate using The Wolf Firm's name, according to the memo.
"The combination of firms in a natural fit that benefits its shared client base who now will gain best-in-class national eviction management paired with best-in-class California litigation, judicial and non-judicial foreclosure, bankruptcy, eviction, closing and regulatory compliance legal services," wrote Alan Wolf, managing partner at The Wolf Firm.
Scott Jackson, Esq., managing attorney from Jackson & Associates, will join the Wolf Firm as executive vice president and will chair the law group's new national eviction group, according to the memo.
The Jackson law firm gained some industry acclaim for being among the first to predict that changes to legal process in the Golden State would lead California to see an increasing amount of judicial foreclosures.
The memo stressed that nothing will change relative to current operations at Jackson & Associates, with Wolf mentioning that the combination of firms is expected to be "seamless" to shared clients of both law firms.
Jackson & Associates founding partner, Robert Jackson, will be assisting with the transition before retiring, according to industry sources that spoke with HousingWire.
