More mergers: Arnold & Porter and Howard Rice to join

The combined firms will employ nearly 1,000 attorneys worldwide

’Tis the season for more than just chestnuts, eggnog and open fires. Shortly after the news broke yesterday that Bryan Cave and Holme Roberts & Owen will merge, the presses started whirring to life once again to announce the union of another set of law firms.

Washington, D.C.-based Arnold & Porter is slated to merger with San Francisco-based Howard Rice Nemerovski Canady Falk & Rabkin. The confluence of firms will employ 160 attorneys in California and about 800 others across the rest of the U.S. and Europe.
