Simmons & Simmons has informed its partners that it is discussing a merger with Mayer Brown. Senior partner David Dickinson confirmed the talks Thursday night in an e-mail to the partnership, saying the two firms are in "preliminary discussions" about a merger. The news of the two firms' merger talks follows last week's action by partners at London rival Denton Wilde Sapte to approve a merger with Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal.
