ORLANS PC EXPANDS ACROSS MIDWEST, MID ATLANTIC, NORTHEAST
ESTABLISHES NATION’S SECOND LARGEST WBENC CERTIFIED WOMAN-OWNED LAW FIRM
Troy, Mich., April 1, 2017 — The mother-daughter team of Linda and Alison Orlans launched Orlans PC today, the second largest WBENC certified women-owned law firm in the United States. Orlans PC is the result of a merger of Orlans Associates P.C. (Troy, MI.), Orlans Moran PLLC (Waltham, MA.) and Atlantic Law Group LLC (Leesburg, VA).
“The future goes to those prepared to change ahead of the times,” Linda Orlans said. “The legal world is changing and our mission is to be on the forefront and help affect that change for the better. This unified law firm represents a dramatic step forward in creating a more capable, more responsive and more efficient entity to serve a growing client base.”
Linda Orlans will serve as Chairwoman, and Alison Orlans will assume the role of President and Chief Executive Officer.
Orlans PC provides legal services to local and national banks, credit unions, consumer loan finance companies, loan servicers, investors, government agencies, landlords, municipalities, utilities, title insurance companies and private individuals. It operates in eight jurisdictions (DC, DE, MA, MD, MI, NH, RI, VA), and is headquartered in Troy, MI. The firm is certified by The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), as women owned and operated.
Combining teams and resources allows Orlans PC to enhance client service by refining processes, leveraging shared technology and increasing collaboration. Clients now have the benefit of national firm capabilities and resources with localized, face-to-face service. The merger also allows the firm to maintain top compliance standards to meet the growing needs of existing clients, while leveraging a broader range of capabilities to attract new clients.
Linda Orlans launched Orlans PC in the Detroit area in 1998, and has expanded over the years to serve hundreds of clients in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest. Over the past decade, the number of women-owned law firms has grown five times faster than the national average, and Linda has been at the forefront of a new wave of woman-owned law firms opening across the country.
“Legal expertise fused with lean six sigma principles has allowed us to build a different kind of firm, where our attorneys can perfect legal processes, collaborate, and focus on results,” said Alison Orlans. “This merger allows us to think more creatively – and more entrepreneurially – about the services, support and process we put in place for our clients.”
