  • A CMS/Eversheds merger would actually be a great move for both firms and would give them far greater resources for expansion outside of Europe.

    It is also pointlessly duplicative for each to fund the development of separate global office networks.

    A merged firm would of course also be in a far stronger position to negotiate mergers with other firms in due course.

  • It looks to me like Eversheds is on the up and Camerons is on the way down., so it sounds like a good deal all round.

  • Judging by the way that Cameron McKenna has treated its support staff over the last couple of years I would say 'dollop' is defintely the right word to use when describing anything to do with them.

  • If the Olympic Stadium comes up for grabs, may be Cameron McKenna could relocate there. Seems to be the perfect home for any team that thought they were premiership quality but ended up failing under new management,

  • Anyone finding it ironic that on Independence Day we're talking about Cameron McKenna sounding like they might lose theirs? Actually, thinking about how they've been run recently, no.

  • CMS Eversheds? Aaargh.

    You can tell this is an Eversheds work of fiction, or Cat at her most kittenish. If it were from Camerons, it would be the equally delusional CMS Ashurst, or something like that.

    Mergers are the last resort of the strategically bankrupt, the final throw of the dice for vain managing partners looking to leave a legacy. The longed-for magic dust does not make quality out of quantity.

    Or maybe it’s a brilliantly Macchiavellian strategy to make CMcK partners realise how lush the grass is on their side of the fence: "Cough up yer £70k with a smile, boys and girls - it's a price worth paying to stave off merger."

    Cat knows - we ALL know - that Delphic denials from the firms to to the meeja are designed to be identical whether denying a false or true rumour. So move along, nothing to see here. I thought crowbarring the beloved Norton Rose into last week's headline about the global elite was dubious journalism; this week's editorial proves the silly season is in full swing.

  • Nevermind the possibility of a CMS - Eversheds merger, what about the chances of a Dickinson Dees - Shoosmiths link up?

  • I think CMS have missed the boat on this one. I don't work in London so don't know too closely the work that CMS does, but I think that Eversheds is now working at a higher level. Look at Superbrands for a start, and also some of the deals that Eversheds do in the regions - we are not talking pocket change.

    Eversheds are never going to be doing Slaughter & May type work, but I honestly think that if Eversheds do accept a City merger it will be with Clifford Chance. That is the closest match in my view.
