Merger chatter seems to be quieter than this time last year, but legal industry experts say it's never really stopped. Merger activity in 2007 is set to outpace the flurry of combinations completed in 2006, according to Hildebrandt International.

One consultant predicts there will be 50 or more mergers nationally by the end of the year.
