UK firms DWF and Cobbetts finally announce plans to merge

January 18, 2012 UK firms DWF and Cobbetts have finally announced their plans to merge in May, after unconfirmed reports circulated about the tie-up since November, when the domain name was registered. At the time, Cobbetts claimed unconvincingly that the website registration had been the work of an "over-zealous IT worker" and that, although the firm was in the market for a merger, the domain name didn't really signify anything.

It appears that the merger won’t be a simple affair, with a number of Cobbetts partners, including managing partner Michael Shaw, reported to be opting out of the DWF Cobbetts alliance.
