Berwin Leighton Paisner seals merger with US firm

Berwin Leighton Paisner has agreed a merger with US law firm Bryan Cave, with the combined, 1,600-lawyer practice officially launching in April.

The new firm will be called Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner and enjoy combined revenues of more than $900m. It will have 32 offices across 11 countries.

The new combined firm will be led by Co-Chairs Therese Pritchard and Lisa Mayhew.

Mayhew said: “Our combination is rooted in a shared determination to do something fresh and different for clients. Clients will benefit from our combined legal expertise; our shared values and culture and our approach to innovation in their interests.

“Different to most other international firms, ours will be fully financially integrated from Day one. This will enable us to work in teams whose only focus will be to provide a first class service to clients.”

Pritchard said: “This merger will result in an expanded presence and set of service offerings in key markets around the world and accelerate our utilisation of technology and innovation to redefine efficiency and value in the practice of law.

“Both firms have long traditions of building strong relationships – both with clients and within our firms. This legacy is reflected in shared values, including a core belief that our greatest asset is our people and our greatest responsibility is to our clients.”
