It’s almost like reality matchmaking shows for law firms these days. A large number of firms have announced mergers in recent months—perhaps headlined by the union of Faegre & Benson and Baker & Daniels in mid-October.
Yesterday, a new star-crossed pair, Bryan Cave and Holme Roberts & Owen, announced a merger that will see the firms officially united Jan. 1, 2012. The marriage will combine about 1,100 attorneys in more than 25 offices across the U.S., Europe and Asia. The new joint venture will be known as Bryan Cave LLP.
