Partners at SNR Denton, the 1,140-lawyer global firm created by the 2010 merger of Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal and British firm Denton Wilde Sapte, will officially vote later this month on a three-way merger with European firm Salans and Canadian firm Fraser Milner Casgrain (FMC).

While the possibility of a tie-up between SNR Denton and Salans has been the subject of reports in the British legal press for the past several months, SNR Denton global CEO Elliott Portnoy and global chairman Joseph Andrew told The Am Law Daily from Paris late Wednesday that the two firms have now included FMC in a proposed combination that will be presented to the partnerships of all three firms next week. If approved, the merger will go live in the first quarter of 2013.
