Altman Weil MergerLineā„¢

Welcome to Altman Weil MergerLine™, tracking law firm mergers and acquisitions as they are reported by the press. MergerLine compiles news of mergers and acquisitions of all sizes involving at least one US law firm (including vereins with a US partnership component).  Lawyer headcounts are derived from published league tables, directories and law firm websites.

In 2017, Altman Weil published Ten Years of Law Firm Mergers and Acquisitions, 2007-2016.  The report includes a ten year retrospective on market activity, lists the 25 largest deals of the decade, profiles the ten most active state markets, and includes special sections on cross-border combinations, the acquisitions of AmLaw 200 firms, and the most active deal-makers.
