Eversheds and Foley & Lardner nix merger talks
Eversheds and Foley & Lardner were in talks regarding a merger, with Eversheds considering Milwaukee-based Foley as a primary match for its sought-after merger.
It appears now that Foley & Lardner has ended further discussions about a potential merger with the UK-based law firm.
Eversheds' partnership indicated to its leadership last June that it would give considerable support to a merger with a US firm. The firm's leadership followed the mandate and narrowed its search recently to two firms in the US, including Foley & Lardner, which is preferred as a merger partner.
