Bork absorbed by WSW's Powell Tate

WASHINGTON: The Cassidy Companies will lose a subsidiary, and

Powell Tate will gain a litigation PR practice this week as Robert Bork

Jr. disbands his eponymous firm and returns to independent practice.



The seven employees of $2 million firm Bork & Associates have

been integrated into Powell Tate's downtown office, and Bork today

launches Bork Communications Group. "My time with Cassidy has been an

immensely exciting and profitable one," said Bork, "but I felt this was

a good time to sit back and sort of retool my practice."



The son of the former Supreme Court nominee opened his agency eight

years ago. The Cassidy Companies purchased the firm in 1998.



Jerry Cassidy and Jody Powell, respective CEOs of The Cassidy Companies

and Powell Tate, described Bork's departure as "amicable." Bork is

largely considered a pioneer in the area of litigation PR.
