This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
Construction boutique Shadbolt Law has completed a strategic review that has ended with the firm looking to tie up with EC3 giant Clyde & Co.
Confirming the move Clydes chief executive Peter Hasson told The Lawyer: “We’re in talks with Shadbolt.”
The Clydes partnership was informed of the talks last week (18 November).
It is understood that Shadbolt’s management is aiming to merge with a larger firm to provide it with an international base that would better equip it to compete with international construction practices.
Meanwhile, Clydes is believed to be aiming to add some depth to its construction, projects and infrastructure practices.
If successful the tie-up would see the merged entity overtake Taylor Wessing and Bird & Bird to rank fourteenth in The Lawyer’s UK 200 with a combined turnover of £196m.
