Heller Ehrman, rumored to be in merger talks with Baker & McKenzie, was cagey when confronted with the speculation on Friday. Heller's director of communications, Patrick Bustamante, said the firm "is not considering" a merger with Baker. Asked later to clarify whether "not considering" meant the firm was not in current talks with Baker to explore the possibility of a merger, Bustamante was less clear. "I don't know that I can go into that kind of detail or comment at all," he said.
