SJ Berwin and Mayer Brown in talks over £900m tie-up
This makes a lot of sense, both firms are under weight in London and they would just about get to critical mass. SJB cures MBs problems in Real Estate, Corporate and Investment Funds. MB bring the weight in the US and HK/PRC that SJB would never be able to get to organically as well as a real global finance practice. It would also be enhancing in Germany and France where MB have a stand out transactional PE practice but nothing really to offer in the Funds space and in Germany the combination would again just about get the two firms to critical mass.
go a step further and add King & Wood Mallesons to MB's Asian practice and you get a 10 ton gorilla in the HK/PRC market.
