Hangovers and newlyweds

Happy New Year. While most of us were nursing hangovers yesterday, Richards Butler was busy completing its merger with Reed Smith.

Any client in need of emergency legal advice yesterday could apparently call Reed Smith Richards Butler, which went live on the first day of the year.

All of Richards Butler’s staff now have ‘@reedsmith.co.uk’ email addresses – but despite the integration of systems, the newlyweds can’t find a home together. See story.
