The number of completed law firm mergers in the second quarter of 2020 was on par with prior years, but the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic will dramatically impact the number of mergers in the second half of the year, according to a consultancy tracking mergers.

Overall, the number of mergers completed in the first half of 2020 was down compared to last year and the 10-year historical average, according to Fairfax Associates. So far in 2020, the law firm consultancy has tracked 26 completed mergers, which is down from 2019′s 30 mergers—also the historical average.
