  • That would be an absolutely huge tie-up. Whois in the frame as Dentons merger partner?

  • ...received approaches...broad support within the partnership... nonsense and very old news.

  • I do find the explanation for the additional capital (looking for a US merger partner) surprising. As a partner in a US firm I am aware that the basis of profit distribution (fees collected as against the DWS/UK model of bills rendered) means there is a significantly lower requirement for capital. Accordingly the high DWS capital requirement would act as a block on any merger as opposed to assisting it. DWS would have been better served by reducing drawings and paying off some of their overdraft if they really wanted a full US merger.
