It is far better to be pro active rather than wait until the most suitable merger candidates have been taken (or simply outgrown you).

Reply Link Peter Parker 1 June 2010 at 17:42 Re Camerons, I’ve heard Skadden are in the market. Talks are pretty advanced from what I’m hearing… Reply Link Anonymous 3 June 2010 at 09:22 I’m pretty sure Skadden wouldn’t be interested in Camerons – especially with its PEP and revenues decreasing so much at the time. Also, what would Camerons necessarily bring to the table, apart from London, that Skadden does not already have. Skadden has a presence in Eastern Europe. Whilst Camerons is a lovely firm, its PEP is simply too low for a top tier American firm to consider.

It makes him look unhappy. My memory of the man, albeit from many years back, is that he was a particularly smiley and jovial man.
