Firm History

McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP (MLA) was formed by the 2002 merger of two firms - the Washington, DC-based McKenna & Cuneo and the Atlanta-based Long Aldridge & Norman. In 2012, California-based Luce Forward, Hamilton & Scripps LLP combined with MLA.  The 2012 merger strengthened MLA’s California foothold and increased Luce Forward’s national and international presence. The integrated resources and leveraged capabilities of the combined firm place it among the top 80 largest law firms in the U.S.;  and  in California, among the 20 largest firms, and the third largest real estate practice.
