A legal practice group centering on financial institutions is changing hands between two Hartford-based law firms.

In a statement, officials with Updike, Kelly & Spellacy said their firm will absorb Cranmore, Fitzgerald & Meaney’s financial institutions practice group, an arrangement that includes the division’s attorneys and staff.

Financial details of the transfer were not disclosed.

“We are pleased to welcome Jody Cranmore, Patricia D. Anderson and Jennifer L. DiBella and the staff of CFM,” said UKS President John J. Alissi. “We look forward to the continuation of their Financial Institutions Practice with Updike, Kelly & Spellacy P.C. The addition of their practice will dramatically expand the range of services that the firm can offer its banking and financial institution clients.”

CFM’s financial institutions group provides legal services and advice to banks, mutual institutions, bank holding companies and other financial clients throughout the Northeast. It has been in operation for 37 years.
