UK firms Martineau and Sprecher Grier negotiate for merger

May 23, 2011 Birmingham firm Martineau and London firm Sprecher Grier Halberstam have confirmed that they are in the advanced stages of merger talks. The tie-up, should it proceed, would put the combined firm in the top 80 firms in the UK, ranked by revenue, with takings of £31m.

Martineau senior partner Andrew Whitehead said: “We’ve made no secret about our plans for growing the London office and we’re doing that by a combination of bolt-ons and trying to find the right merger partner.

“Sprecher Grier is a complementary fit for our practice areas. We both have big banking, litigation and property practices.”
