Merger News That Matters

It is being reported that LeBoeuf, Lamb, Greene & MacRae LLP and Dewey Ballantine LLP are in advanced merger talks and that a deal could be announced as soon as tomorrow.  Last year, Dewey walked away from an agreed combination with San Francisco-based Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP.

LeBoeuf is particularly known for its Central European/Russian M&A practice led by Oleg Berger and Mark Banovich.  Nonetheless, Dewey  has the stronger M&A practice, though it has suffered of late from a number of departures including Michael Aiello to Weil, Gotshal & Manges.
