Merger activity reached record levels in 2013, and 2014 is on track for further consolidation of law firms right across the UK top 100 and beyond. The legal services market is increasingly hostile and dynamic which is driving consolidation at a pace never before witnessed. As such, it is crucial you have a clear understanding of the merger process, beyond the legal issues.

Managing Partner's brand new report The Law Firm Merger: A Leader's Guide to Strategy and Realisation outlines a framework for implementation and highlights a number of issues which need the attention of the leadership team; both immediately post-announcement of the merger and then during the initial integration period.

This report:

  • Outlines frameworks for identifying the strategic goals behind a merger
  • Provides advice on how to decide on the profile of the ideal candidate firm, and includes a merger scorecard checklist and frameworks for assessing ‘fit’
  • Outlines, in depth, the role of the law firm leader in the merger process and highlights their responsibilities regarding emotional intelligence, communication, assessing culture, and ensuring a strategic focus on the client
  • Contains detailed guidance on preparing a proposal document or merger prospectus and outlines what such a document should typically include.
      Containing expert contributions from Zoe Holland (of Zebra Legal Consulting) and Robert Mowbray (of Taylor Mowbray), this report will provide a practical guide, based on solid theory and experience, to help law firm leaders achieve merger success and ensure the long term growth of their firm.
