A NEW firm is set to enter the top 100 if merger talks succeed.
West End commercial property firms Forsyte Kerman and Saunders Sobell Leigh & Dobin are in talks on merger prospects.
Forsyte Kerman managing partner Alan Kaufman says: "We are in merger talks with Saunders Sobel, but it is too early to say when or if this will come about." He declined to comment further until details have been finalised.
If the two firms merge and bring in all their fee-earners, the new firm will have 82 fee-earners, making it Britain's 94th largest firm with 37 partners - more than any firm in the top 75-100 range.
