Legacy Norton Rose European partners to participate in US merger vote
Norton Rose Fulbright prepares for a vote on a potential merger with New York-based firm Chadbourne & Parke, partners at the legacy European business will participate in a limited vote on the matter. However, the vote will only cover whether or not Norton Rose’s European partners will join the combined firm.
Norton Rose operates under a verein structure, in which its various arms are treated as separate businesses. Therefore, if a merger is approved, the current deal would only include a merger between Chadbourne and Norton Rose’s US partners.
