When Should Law Firms Merge?

As the law firm merger market heats up again, many firms will consider — or will be approached about — combining with another firm.  Is merger always a good growth strategy?  Will it open new client markets?  Can it be the answer to succession issues?  Or even a rescue strategy for a struggling firm?  Law firms should maintain a healthy skepticism, but also be prepared to recognize a real opportunity when it comes along.

This 60-minute Altman Weil Webinar, When Should Law Firms Merge?, discusses rationales for combination and key strategic considerations so your firm can effectively address merger opportunities as they arise.

  • Strategic alternatives for small law firms
  • Are merged firms more profitable?
