Law firm Stoel Rives LLP, based in Portland, Ore., and with offices in Salt Lake City, has merged with San Francisco law firm Washburn, Briscoe & McCarthy.

"This merger strengthens our regional reach and it enables us to provide our clients with a California presence that many other local firms don't offer," said John Kirkham, managing partner for the Stoel Rives Salt Lake office, which has 47 attorneys and staff.

Stoel Rives has offices in Portland, Ore.; Seattle, and Vancouver, Wash.; Salt Lake; Bois; and Washington, D.C. Washburn, Briscoe has four offices in Northern California.

The merged firm will eventually take the Stoel Rives name, a spokeswoman said, but initially the California firms will retain their name. The merger will become effective Oct. 1.
