A Manhattan judge has rejected a legal recruiter's attempt to collect a merger fee from Blank Rome, which rejected the recruiter's proposed combination with a small New York firm but later completed the deal with the help of a different search firm. The e-mail exchange between Mark Bruce International and Blank Rome did not constitute an enforceable contract because the parties had not agreed on the terms of a fee, Supreme Court Justice Herman Cahn ruled.
