Law firms Holland & Hart LLP and Hale Lane Peek Dennison and Howard said this week that they plan to combine forces.

Hale Lane is one of the largest firms in Nevada and represents business lenders, developers, publicly traded companies and entrepreneurs. The firm does estate planning, taxes and personal matters for individuals.

Denver-based Holland & Hart has 14 offices throughout the West, including in Salt Lake City, and expanded to Nevada in 2006. It represents companies of all sizes — from emerging businesses to large public multinational corporations.

The combined firm will result in a total of 63 attorneys in Nevada, which will be one of the largest firms in that state, and 415 attorneys throughout the entire firm.
