Beachcroft is in merger talks with Davies Arnold Cooper (DAC) in a deal that would create an insurance law firm with combined revenues of around 175 million pounds.

The move — which follows news of merger talks between fellow insurance specialists Clyde & Co and Barlow Lyde & Gilbert — would give both firms a broader international presence, with Beachcroft currently housing offices outside of England in Dublin, Wales, Brussels, Singapore and New Zealand, while DAC has a presence in Spain and Mexico.
