  • So, Proskauer are looking closely at their synergies with SJB in Real Estate and Funds. Funny, 6 years ago when Proskauer were in merger talks with Richards Butler, I seem to recall a lot being made of the giant litigation powerhouse that was going to be created. Presumably, someone somewhere has decided that focusing on this type of work is likely to more profitable than claimant litigation! But will SJB's reduced PEP these days be enough to secure this marriage?...it wasn't for RB.

  • I wonder if this will cause many partners leaving SJ Berwin as has been the case with other recent transatlantic mergers.

  • Really don't think the partners and management for that matter, at SJ Berwin know what they are getting themselves into. It will be a shock for them if the merger goes ahead as SJB will not be able to carry on with their arrogance!! The US law firm will eat them up and it will be very funny to watch, BUT they have no choice as SJB are struggling.
