Mergers of U.S. law firms dip in second quarter

Fewer mergers reported than in first quarter

In the past three months, the number of law firm mergers of U.S.-based firms has dropped, according to surveys by consulting companies Altman Weil and Thomson Reuters’ Hildebrandt Institute.

Altman Weil said that in the first quarter of 2012, law firms reported 14 mergers, but the second quarter only saw 10. Hildebrandt’s numbers differed—the company reported that there were only five mergers in the second quarter, compared to 20 in the first.
