Finding a merger candidate can be a daunting process. However, integrating a merged group of attorneys into a new firm’s culture, practice environment and organizational structure so that attorneys from both firms work as one may be a greater challenge.

The potential problems that may occur after the joining of two firms are infinitely complex. Such a merger will call for a change in the manner in which the attorneys in the newly merged firm currently practice law and manage their business. It will, potentially, require different approaches to management and compensation but will open numerous new opportunities, especially with the enhanced professional, substantive and economic objectives of the newly merged organization.
