Fulbright & Jaworski and Norton Rose Announce Merger, To Create Firm With 3,800 Lawyers


Fulbright & Jaworski is planning to merge with Norton Rose to create a global firm of 3,800 lawyers across 55 offices in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and Latin America.

The merger is expected to be completed by June 1, 2013 and the new entity will be called Norton Rose Fulbright. On Fulbright's website, the firm's Chair of the Executive Committee, Steven B. Pfeiffer released a statement saying that the merger will enable the firm to expand globally. Peter Martyr, Chief Executive of Norton Rose has said that his firm had looked at the American market for a firm that met their criteria of being financially strong, good business synergies and a compatible culture.

Ward Bower, from Altman Weil, commenting on the proposed merger has said that this merger would mean that "there will be less than a handful of law firms with global reach, depth and breadth of this quality."
