Is Crowell & Moring in merger talks? The National Law Journal‘s sibling publication, The Recorder, said Wednesday morning that there are reports that the Washington-based firm is in talks with San Francisco’s Folger Levin & Kahn. But in an interview with an NLJ reporter, Crowell & Moring Chairman Kent Gardiner said he wouldn’t confirm or deny the reports. “I unfortunately can’t comment on that,” he said.

Michael Goecke, a senior associate at Lerch, Early & Brewer who left Crowell in May, said he had no knowledge of any merger discussions between Crowell and Folger, but they would not be out of step with the firm’s growth strategy.
