Two Missouri law firms are discussing a merger that would create the state’s second largest firm.

Blackwell Sanders and Husch & Eppenberger are discussing a combination that would produce a 630-lawyer firm, the National Law Journal reports. With 800 lawyers, Bryan Cave is the state’s largest law firm.

Husch has a litigation focus while Blackwell Sanders emphasizes corporate work. The possible combination is a "compelling fit,” said Joseph Conran, chairman of Husch’s management committee.
