Sonnenschein Nath and Denton Wilde plan merger

Sonnenschein Nath and Denton Wilde plan merger

Two large international law firms, Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal LLP and Denton Wilde Sapte LLP, said Wednesday they plan to merge.
If shareholders approve the deal, the combined SNR Denton firm will have 1,400 lawyers and fee earners and do business in 18 countries. Its largest offices would be in London and New York.
The companies did not disclose terms of the deal. They said shareholders will vote on the proposed tie-up on June 9. If they approve, the combination would be complete by Sept. 30.
The CEOs of the individual companies, Martin Kitchen and Joseph Andrew, would be co-CEOs and co-chairmen of SNR Denton.
The firms said they started discussing the deal several months ago after each company conducted a strategic review.
Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal is based in Chicago. Denton Wilde Sapte traces its origin to two London law firms founded in the late 18th century.
