The merger of Fulbright & Jaworski and London-based Norton Rose became official today.
The firm will have nearly 3,800 lawyers in more than 50 cities, making it one of the world’s top 10 legal practices by number of lawyers, according to a press release.
The Wall Street Journal Law Blog (sub. req.) calls the combination “the latest in a three-year spree of combinations that have planted Norton Rose’s flag in Australia, Canada, Latin American and Central Asia, and now the U.S., a region that has proven a tough nut to crack for English firms.”
