The mother-daughter team of Linda and Alison Orlans launched Orlans PC, expanding their certified women-owned law firm, Orlans Associates PC. Based in Troy, the new firm is the result of a merger of Orlans Associates P.C. of Troy, Orlans Moran PLLC of Waltham, MA and Atlantic Law Group LLC of Leesburg, VA. The merger makes it the second largest Womens Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) certified women-owned law firm in the United States. Linda Orlans will serve as Executive Chair, and Alison Orlans will assume the role of President and Chief Executive Officer.
Combining teams and resources allows Orlans PC to enhance client service by refining processes, leveraging shared technology and increasing collaboration, according to Linda Orlans.
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 launched Orlans Associates 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.
