A webinar presented by the IBA Law Firm Management Committee and supported by the IBA Latin America Regional Forum

The news of the merger between Shearman & Sterling and Allen & Overy will bring to the forefront that niggling thought – should I merge? Is my law firm at an inflection point? How do I grow, remain competitive, attract and retain talent in the current market? If I stay there will be trouble, if I merge there will be double?

Our panellists will let you know: we look at the do's and don'ts of law firm mergers with insights from a market-leading consultant and teams that have acted on some of the most significant recent mergers. We consider Big Law to Big Four, strategic partnerships and independent law firms as alternatives, adding the cognizance of a leading legal journalist to the discussion.
