  • Surely Bond Pearce merging with Dickinson Dees is the most interesting merger in terms of the "who's in charge?" dynamic?
    Bond Pearce is slightly more profitable and just edges it in terms of its breadth of panels. However Jonathan Bond of Dickinson Dees has negotiated his way into the top role in the new firm. There's also rumours of Dickinson Dees telling their clients that they've taken over Bond Pearce.
    Even the name doesn't give anything away. Although there is some status in having your firm's name first, in this case everyone knew that the Dickinson Dees name would be played down (because since 2007 they've had a pretty bad time and must be eager to 'refresh' their brand).
    Expect a few wobbles before the hierarchy in that new firm is decided.
