Might Norton Rose end up the same way? Here’s hoping not, but on the face of it, the similarities of management approach seem striking.

To date the mergers have provided a vast collection of non-connected offices, operating within a verein which does little to align firm-wide interests. Integration costs, few inter-continential synergies and lots of explanation to clients who have also been kept in the dark are un-productive. I think you mean that in the year or two after the mergers, say 2015, the partners will want to see if benefits are delivered.
