Law Firm Mergers and Acquisitions

Are you considering a merger or the acquisition of another firm?

We make sure due diligence is carried out properly and risks to compliance are addressed.

Whether you are contemplating a full-scale merger with another law firm, or taking over all or part of another firm, lack of proper forward planning, particularly in relation to risk, can lead to problems which far outweigh the benefits.

We work with the acquiring firm to test regulatory compliance at the target firm, with particular focus on financial stability together with a wide range of pre-merger duties. We ensure that the merged firm has addressed the range of compliance risks posed by the merger and is best placed to operate in a consistent and efficient way.
