Managing partners of certain midsize firms are some of the most popular people in New York. Almost every week, an out-of-town firm approaches them about a possible merger. “We go on a lot of lunches,” says John Maynard, managing partner of Reboul, MacMurray, Hewitt, Maynard & Kristol. That firm has two features that consultants and headhunters say make it an attractive merger candidate — a size between 50 and 300 lawyers and a strong corporate practice. Other attributes that can grab a suitor’s eye include high profitability, extensive international connections, or a strong intellectual property practice. Firms getting a lot of calls include: � Hughes Hubbard & Reed � Kaye Scholer � Kelley Drye & Warren � Patterson, Belknap, Webb & Tyler � Pennie & Edmonds � O’Sullivan Graev & Karabell � Reboul MacMurray � Robinson Silverman Pearce Aronsohn & Berman � Rosenman & Colin � Schulte Roth & Zabel � Seward & Kissel � Squadron Ellenoff Plesent & Sheinfeld � Stroock & Stroock & Lavan
