Law Mergers

A law firm merger is a “bet the farm” deal and needs meticulous planning and execution.

The first element is to keep your plans confidential. If competitors hear they will quickly take advantage of any uncertainty to poach key clients and staff. Using Ampersand Legal negates this possibility because the first approaches we make are always anonymous and all subsequent stages protected by NDA.

A merger is the biggest transaction your firm will ever complete and the biggest risk it will take. By instructing Ampersand Legal you are guaranteeing the best chance of success.
