Altman Weil MergerLine™
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. Our focus is U.S. firms, but we will report on significant combinations wherever they occur. Lawyer headcounts are derived from published league tables, directories and law firm websites.
Our strategic alliance partner, Jomati Consultants LLP, is tracking all mergers involving UK-based law firms in The Lawyer 100 or which are likely to be in The Lawyer 100 as a result of their merger, starting from January 2011. The list is available at MergerLine UK.
