  • Is this merger a joke? Have the firms done proper due diligence on each other yet?

  • What's with one guy saying they're not merging then another releasing a statement with the other firm saying they probably are? Don;t these people talk to each other? A disaster waiting to happen.

  • Why not? The combined firm is hardly going to worry the global leaders but it makes sense.

  • @Donald, keep your troosers on, as the statement says, they're exploring whether it's worth progressing, which in many people's eyes would include due diligence.

    Fair play to both firms if this comes off, BDB in particular has some great people and the new bunch would be a solid national firm. Good luck to them.

  • The Bircham partners will never vote for this.

  • Presumably Dundas's objective is to "asset strip" BDB's parliamentary drafting practice and eject the remainder at the first opportunity. Can't see what's in it for BDB.

  • The legal world is changing fast and any firm with an eye to the future is looking at the mutual benefits of partnering or merging. As a supplier selling into the sector we are aware of a huge amount of activity of this nature. When the music stops the firms that evolved will survive and those that didn't will be left standing.

  • Credit to both firms for trying to fulfil their strategic ambitions. It actually makes sense on a number of levels.Good luck to them.

  • Trev has it. The Bircham partners won't stand for it.

  • BDB (never heard of them before, but whatever) should steer well clear of D&W, like the clients do.
