Hogan & Hartson and Lovells are one step closer to merging. The management of both firms have signed off on the union, according to a statement released early Thursday. The agreement to proceed with the merger was unanimous; the matter will next be taken up by the firms’ respective partnerships. The proposed merger is subject to approval by the partnerships.

The announcement comes three weeks after news of merger talks was first reported by London’s Legal Week. The leadership of Hogan and Lovells had been engaged in informal discussions for several months, according to that report.
