Theodores, Addleshaws delay merger vote

Theodore Goddard and Addleshaw Booth & Co have pushed the date on which partners will vote on their proposed merger back to 16 April. The vote is understood to be a dead cert, since the firms announced publicly that they had entered exclusive talks on Valentine’s Day. However, the original plan to vote on 31 March was scrapped, partly because they wished to avoid announcing the result on April Fools’ Day. First revealed on 2 April 2003
