Gross Welch Marks Clare has long been a respected law firm known for its commitment to excellence. The firm has worked to enhance its capabilities and expertise through a series of strategic moves.
In 2022, two longstanding Omaha law firms, Gross & Welch (founded in 1927) and Marks Clare & Richards (founded in 1933) merged to establish Gross Welch Marks Clare. This union combined the experience of both firms while building on the wide range of services that each firm offered. The merger enabled Gross & Welch and Marks Clare & Richards to meet the diverse needs of their clients while upholding their long-established commitments to personalized service.
Shortly after the merger, the firm began its second phase of growth. Effective May 1, 2023, the firm merged with Badura & Wintz, further broadening its range of practice areas. With this recent merger, Dan Wintz and Margaret Badura provide additional estate planning and elder law services, complementing the established services already offered by Gross Welch Marks Clare.
The firm also made two strategic lateral hires:
Ryan Watson joined the firm as a Director, bringing experience in a range of practice areas. Ryan’s practice at Gross Welch Marks Clare is focused on estate planning, probate and estate litigation.
Elena Whidden joined the firm as an Associate. Elena brings a unique background to the firm, having previously worked extensively in the area of guardianship law. She will further bolster the firm’s estate planning team.
