  • This is a perfectly sensible bolt-on but Mills & Reeve will need some rather larger combinations to stay relevant. There are no shortage of possibilities - Charles Russell, Withers, Wragge & Co, Farrer & Co and Burges Salmon all come to mind - but too much delay will lead to dwindling options.

  • Assume this is George Davies of George at Asda fame?

  • What is it with the pre-occupation with merger?! Strategic bolt ons make much more sense than bulking up, for bulking up's sake (see DWF model). This seems like a sensible move by M&R. They should now integrate the new partners before looking at further consolidation. Mergers borne of genuine strategic drivers are much more likely to succeed than mergers borne of a desire simply to get bigger. You can't tell me that Bond Dickinson is twice as good a firm as it was before its merger?!

  • Couldn’t help noticing this from GD’s website: ‘We’re keen to remain an independent mid-size firm’ Mark Hovell - Managing Partner Magazine 2012 – So what has changed?
