Law Firms

Pillsbury and Fulbright Are Reportedly Discussing a Merger


Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman is reportedly discussing a possible merger with Fulbright & Jaworski.

Three sources told the Daily Journal (sub. req.) about the merger talks, though neither firm confirmed the report. Pillsbury has held merger discussions with other law firms as well, including Nixon Peabody; Chadbourne & Parke; and Edwards Angell Palmer & Dodge before its merger with Wildman Harold Allen & Dixon, the story says.

Although Pillsbury chairman Jim Rishwain refused to comment when contacted by the Daily Journal, he did talk about expansion plans in an interview with the Daily Journal two weeks ago.

“Over time we have aspirations to become a global firm,” he told the publication. “I will just say there are many tactics and approaches to getting to that place. We are open to pursuing every single approach.”
